Those black wings really stand out on those fall, drizzly, flat-light days when the baetis are pouring off the water.
hook - Dai Riki 320 #18
thread - Uni 8/0 olive dun
shuch - Z-lon amber
tail - mallard (dyed woodduck)
Abdomen - biot olive brown
wing case - 1mm foam grey
thorax - dubbing olive
wing - Congo Hair black
Mash down barb, start thread
tie in a hank of Congo Hair and figure-8 it; twist ends together to keep it out of the way
tie in shuck, wrap back to bend; trim (gap width)
tie in a few mallard flank fibers (shank length)
moisten biot and tie in (notch side down for ribbed effect, up for smooth; your choice); wrap forward, tie off and trim
tie in foam strip (gap width)
dub thread, dub thorax
pull foam forward, tie off, trim; half hitch x 2, SHHAN
trim wings (shank length), check the seams on your rain gear and pray for crummy weather
Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolor motor home
