Tim's Carburetor 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.

Apparently Tim King has a car thing; this one's more of a stonefly/hopper imitation, tied here as a golden stone. I've seen it tied with a foam strip over the back, as well (maybe that's his Fuel Injector?).

hook - Dai Riki 280 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 black
abdomen - dubbing golden yellow
wing - bleached elk
thorax - peacock herl
hackle - brown
head - foam strip 1mm yellow underneath 2mm black
legs - tan/black barred rubber medium


Mash down barb; start thread back about gap width back from the eye and wrap back to bend

dub thread, dub abdomen

Image


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

Image

Image


tie in foam strips

Image

Image


tie in peacock herl

Image


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

Image

Image

Image


continue wrapping peacock to eye; tie off and trim

Image


wrap hackle in space between legs, tie off and trim

Image


trim hackle on top, pull foam over, tie off

Image

Image


trim foam, trim legs, half hitch x 2, SHHAN

Image


trim out hackle underneath (optional)
