9. Take a strip of yellow foam, a bit narrower than the
black and tie in at the leg tie in point on the top
of the fly. This will be your indicator, so feel free
to size it according to your individual impairment,
mine is rather average.
10. Now slip the thread under the head of the fly and tie
off at the hook eye as on any other fly.
The last step is to use "Daves Fleximent" to glue the
head, and as long as you have it out, put a drop at
each of the leg/body tie-ins on the bottom side of
the hook. This will prevent twisting and generally
add a lot of durability to the fly.
Being a gluttonous creature I have landed as many as 50 fish on a single
fly, which I retired as much from embarrassment as anything else. If tied
well, these things last for a lot of fish.
As far as technique with this fly, a dead drift into typical holding areas
will bring the fish like a dinner bell brings chow hounds! You might also want
to "grease" your leader. And a dropper is not out of the question either.
Good luck, and let me know how you make out with this thing where you fish,
good and bad! (though I expect to hear nothing bad frankly) .
