Personal tying notes:
- The original fly pattern calls for Bronze Mallard. The YouTube video below utilizes Mallard dyed Wood Duck.
- YouTube instructions doesn’t use copper wire for rib. Instead, they use thread.
- The original fly pattern doesn’t use legs.
Here is a link to an article in Fly Tyer magazine where Mike Jacobs, who developed the fly, provides instructions of how he ties the fly – HERE.
Lastly, this YouTube video is from tightlinevideo where Tim Flagler ties a variation of the original fly pattern, one I prefer.
