Wrap lead onto the hook and cover about 2/3 of hook.
Wrap in thread and secure lead by forming thread dams on both ends of lead.
Tie in black marabou tail so it is the length of the hook.
Tie in the medium copper wire, which will be used to rib the fly later.
Tie in a burnt orange grizzly hackle by the TIP. This will be used to hackle the body later.
Dub on some green seal fur and wrap forward to form a long, thin body.
Wrap copper wire forward to create about 5 to 6 ribs over the body.
Wrap hackle forward to form 4 hackle segments over body (no more) and then take about 3 wraps of hackle near eyelet to form a bushy head.
Wrap thread around the head hackle so that a tapered head is formed.
One of our most effective "All Around" patterns. Works great in lakes and rivers. The seal fur is what sets this fly apart from all others!
