This fly is one of my favorite Mayfly for fishing in cold and fast flowing rivers.
This Mayfly is working great in May and June on Sava river from Slovenia.
I like to make the body with CDC because the transparency effect of this material is unique.
Here is the step by step:
Materials that I used:
Hook: Maruto Dohitomi D04 #12
Body Thread: Micro Floss – yellow
Body: Ultra Selected CDC -tan ( beige gold )
Ribbing: Pure Silk – brown
Tail: 4-5 pheasant tail barbs – natural brown
Wings: Lemon Wood Duck genuine
Hackle: Whiting –Herbert Miner saddle – chocolate dun color
Sweet fly and easy tie…love it Lucian!
Very pretty fly.
