mouth - small flies!|
The small dipterae - Simulium sp. - has always been a problem - they are tiny
and shows up in fantastic numbers. Why should a trout prefer our imitations when
there are som many all over the water?
After tying the front-hackle down behind the neck of the hook, one winds to the bend, tie the rear-hackle down and turns it. To tie the body materail down - should it not be the tying silk - can be a problem, if one has thick, clumsy fingers; but in the drawing I have shown, how to do it very easily.
The body is formed and the longer front-hackle turned and the fly finished in the usual way.
