Another pattern that I discovered at Gate’s AuSable Lodge. This pattern can be used for both spinners and duns.

Step By Step:
Start thread. Select a few pheasant tail fibers and tie them in as shown.
Wrap a dubbing body with pale yellow superfine dubbing as shown.
Stack a clump of deer hair and align, secure, and segment the body the same way as the Hex Spinner pattern, but keep the deer hair on top of the shank. Trim excess hair and wrap over the butt ends with the thread.
Prepare and tie in two grizzly hackle feathers and wrap as shown.
Tie in a white rubber leg on each side of the body in front of the hackle wraps.
Stack a clump of deer belly hair and tie in at the rubber legs. Add a few strands of glow-in-the-dark flashabou if desired.
After securing the hair wing, tie off, and trim the legs to length, trim the hair leaving short butts facing forward, and trim the hackle along the bottom.

Additional Tips/Photos:
  • The glow-in-the-dark material helps to make the fly visible in total darkness, which helps you to gauge how far you are getting your cast out to feeding fish.
