Step 2

At the back of the fly, tie an SF brown strap, with a 45° inclination. It should remain horizontal.

Step 4

Turn the hook upside down and tie an SF white strap. Make the “V” shape too. Keep tying brown straps on top and white ones below to shape the body, leaving some space before the hook eye.

Tie an SF brown strap on top, pointing towards the back, to cover the back of the fly.

Step 6

Bend the brown strap and, turning the hook, tie a white one bending it towards the back to finish the head tidily. The top brown strap shapes the back of the fly, the lower one shapes the belly, and the body is created with side straps that make it bulkier in a special way.

Step 7

Trim with long scissors. Glue the eyes so they last longer and remain attached to the fibers.
