Attach the hook to the vice. Fasten the tying thread and wire it back to the point of the hook
Find one piece of Semperfli Nymph Dub color green, and one piece of Semperfli Straggle string color olive. Tie them into the point where your tying thread is. Secure it well. Put on a small drop of glue
Twist these two pieces together. Twist hard and held it with your left hand. Find your dubbing needle
Use your dubbing needle and adjust the length of the body. Secure with the tying thread. Cut of the excess material
Find a nice bundle of Deer Hair. Adjust the size to the body. Put it in the stacker, and hammer loose
Mount the wing on the fly. Start with a couple of loose turns with the tying thread, then tighten it
Find two pieces of Dark Grey CDC feather. Don`t pick the nicest one, save them for wings or similar on mayflies.
Use your CDC tool to pick out the fibres
Use your CDC clamp / paper clamp. Collect the CDC fibres, prepare the tying thread for next step. Splitting
When you use Semperfli Nano thread, it is very easy to split the thread, witch often is an advantage instead of using regular dubbing loop.
Put the CDC fibers in the splitted thread or in the loop. Keep the tying thread or the loop hard so that the fibers do not fall out.
Twist and spin the thread. Spin enough, but not to much. If you spin to much the thread will be weak, and it may break of.
Wrap one turn around the hook in front of the wing, then wrap one turn behind/under the wing. Next turns, all in front of the wing. Fold the CDC feathers backwards with your fingers for each turn.
Find your favorite Hares dubbing. Mine is the one from Live4flyfishing, just love this one
Dubb the thorax / head very loose
Try to make a nice transition from the wing to the hook eye
Brush your fly with your dubbing brush. Take out a lot of fibers, and use your fingers to bend them backwards.
Use the scissors to remove excessive fibers
Tie of the fly with a half stitch or whipfinish tool. Secure it with varnish or glue.
