Hook- Daiichi 1530 Size 12-16
Thread- Black 6/0
Tail- Rainbow Flash
Body- Squirrel Dubbing (Driftless Angler Has the best dubbing for this fly)
- Small Red Wire
Head- Pink(shrimp) Chennile
-Gold or Tungsten Bead
Make sure you stop short of the bead leaving enough room for your pink chennile. Remove any excess dubbing from the body
Step 5: Wrap your wire around the body 3-4 times. Tie off in the front and snip the extra wire.
Step 6: Tie in your Pink Chennile. I typically give the chennile 1 1/2 wraps to get up towards the bead. An alternative to this is using a pink antron dubbing. This is just as effective and adds a little sparkle to the pink for some flash. Tie off and finish with a couple double whips
Step 7- add some glue to your thread to hold your whip finish. Trim your tail if you tied it on long. Also some like to trim the body hair down a bit. I like to leave mine a little wild, because to me it gives it a little bit of a buggyer look.
Enjoy this fly! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Hope everyone has a great season! Tight Lines to all! Here is a link to the Driftless Angler Squirrel Dubbing http://www.driftlessangler.com/estore/details/29128/0/2827
