Tim's Alternator SBS

kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Cool fly from Tim King; pretty simple tie. Fish it as a caddis or mayfly emerger, or just to pound them up.

hook - Dai Riki 280 #12
thread - Danville 6/0 black
abdomen - opalescent mylar medium
wing - bleached elk
thorax - peacock herl
hackle - brown


Mash down barb; wrap thread back about gap width from the eye

Image


tie in mylar, wrap halfway down the bend and back to where you started; tie off and trim

Image

Image

Image


clean, stack, measure (tips to the hook bend) a clump of elk; tie in, trim butts

Image

Image

Image


tie in some peacock herl

Image


twist around thread, take a couple wraps, then tie in hackle

Image

Image


finish wrapping peacock, tie off and trim

Image


move thread back to mid-thorax; wrap hackle, tie off, trim, half hitch x 2 at eye, SHHAN

Image

Image

Image


trim out hackle underneath - optional

Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolor motor home
