Mine is a size 4 hook with olive 6/0 thread, red fibre tail and silver oval tinsel rib. Body is Senyo's grey laser dub with some extra silver, blue or pink flash enhancer, spun into a rope and brushed out with a baby toothbrush. Wing is olive rabbit strip with a topping of olive laser dub. I usually pop some small 4 mm eyes on this but alas I had run out :D

Rudy,

The body is just plain old brown glister dubbing from Steve. Just grab a chunk spin it round thread and dub. I should really do a dubbing loop but can't be arsed with mucking round :D

Your fly on the other hand I can't even comprehend what materials went where - too complicated for my fish brain :lol:

Cheers

Matt - scroll back one page. They're very, very straightforward ties. Simple, like me. Just big (like me! :lol: )

I tend to do them in stages - all the tails first, then front bodies, then heads etc. Cut all materials, lay them out, do it very methodically. (And then stuff it all up as I run out of materials and mix 'n match!)

Johnno - ah, hadn't figured out that that flash enhancer was. Cool stuff - delicate.
