Hook : Gamakatsu BS10S, #6
Thread : Danville mono
Body : (First Dubbing Brush), Extra Select Craft Fur White,
(Second Dubbing Brush) Extra Select Craft Fur Olive
With prepared dubbing brushes, this quick tie can be easily made in a wide range of sizes. Reduced to two brushes and a touch of Prismcolor Marker (3424) for eyes, a lateral line, throat, or belly color, you can knock out flies you can afford to lose on those "hero" casts into high risk areas, where the big ones hang out. Throw in a little flash such as the Krystal Flash (F3178) or go all out Vegas if you want.
For stream use, consider using the nearly neutral density minnow with sink tips rather than adding weight to the hook shank or heavy eyes. changing tip allows accommodation for changing conditions and fewer collateral hook sets. Rio's Veritips (F5131) work nicely with single handed rods.
