United Fly Tyers of Rhode Island, Inc.

Mickey Finn

Tied by: Dick Pearce

Thread: White or cream for body, then black 6/0 
Hook: 14 3x - 6x (for 6X make body shorter)
Body: Silver or gold tinsel or mylar (silver for clear, gold for brown water, mylar for floating higher in the water column 
Wing: Yellow and red bucktail, mongo tail, marabou, or craft fur

Use only a small amount of material for each layer of the wing. Dampen the material and measure so that it comes just to the end or just beyond the bend. Pinch wrap and tie the material to the hook.  Lift up the material, hold on to it, and take one turn around it before adding the next layer.
