Hook: Size 2 Mustad 3366.
Spinner: 00 indiana or 0 indiana, size 1 split ring,
and a size 12 or 14 crane swivel.
Thread: Whatever you like.
Eye: Dumbell or beadchain.
Tail and wing: Synthetic "feather" dusters. I bought
a lifetime supply at the Dollar Tree for a dollar a pop.
Body: White Ice chenille or doll hair, doll hair is
found at hobby stores under the doll making supplies, again
a life time supply can be had for little cash.
Step 1: Attach a size 00 or 0 Indiana spinnerblade and a size
12 or 14 Crane swivel to a size 1 split ring. These are very
tiny spinner blades, a size 1 or larger blade would extend past
the hook point and reduce hook-ups. The Crane swivel is a great
piece of hardware for flyrod lures, it's alot smaller and more
compact that a standard barrel swivel. A barrel swivel the same
size would again be longer than the hook point. The original
coyote used crane swivels as well. When done, slide the free
end of the swivel on the hook.
Step 2: Start your thread and tie in the eye. I'm using
bead chain for the extra rattle it provides.
Step 3: Clip some of the synthetic featherduster and tie
in the tail of the fly so that part of it extends past
the hook. This will be the wing when done.
Step 4: Tie in doll hair or chenille.
Step 5: Wrap the doll hair up the shank and tie off.
Step 6: Using a figure 8 wrap and secure the tag
end of the wing to the eye.
Step 7: Invert the fly and fold the wing toward the tail
of the fly. Secure with thread.
Step 8: Tie in a topper for the fly. I used Chartreuse
synthetic feather duster fibers. Use your imagination!
Step 9: Whip finish and cement the head and eye.
Step 10: Finished fly, out of the vise.
