Supposed to work on run-ups from Hebgen in the Fall; may have to give that a try. Kinda like a Shakey Beely but a bit more subdued.

hook - Mustad 3906B #10
thread - Uni 8/0 fire orange
tail - pheasant tail
rib - x-small wire copper
abdomen - pheasant tail
thorax - Ice Dub orange
wing - Krystal Flash pearl
hackle - partridge


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

Image


tie in some PT fibers

Image


wrap the butt ends forward, tie off and trim

Image


counter-wrap wire rib; tie off, helicopter end

Image

Image


tie in some KF; let the ends hang out over the eye

Image


dub thread, dub thorax

Image

Image


pull KF back over thorax and tie down; trim even with hook bend

Image


tie in partridge feather (by the butt and the fibers tend to stand out from the fly, by the tip and they're more swept back - your choice)

Image


wrap partridge, tie of, trim, whip finish (since soft hackles are classy), SHHAN
