United Fly Tyers of Rhode Island, Inc.
Dennis' Table: Jester Shrimp Fly
Russ's Table: Fullback Woven Nymph
HOOK: MUSTAD Stainless steel 1/0 or 2/0 or equivalent
THREAD: Fluorescent red
WEIGHT: Optional. 4 to 5 wraps of .030 lead free wire on center of shank. I wrap the heads of these with fluorescent chartreuse for identification.
TAIL:Two hot pink marabou feathers with 4-6 strands of pink or pearl crystal flash sandwiched in between. Flash should extend slightly beyond marabou.
BODY: Pink "glitter eyelash". (Can substitute Estaz)
BEARD AND CHEEKS: Long white buck tail extending under tail. (this helps to prevent marabou from fouling around hook bend)
WING: Green Flashabou extending to bend.
I fish it on an intermediate line and retrieve it with a quick strip and a short pause in between. This allows the marabou tail and Flashabou wing to pulsate nicely.
Hook: Tiemco 2457 – # 6 – #14 , or 2499 SP-BL or other caddis pupa hook: Mustad 9674 #10 - #8 2XH/5XL or 2XL for streamer nymph
Weight: Lead wire in a diameter that won’t make the finished fly too bulky ( .020 wire for #10 pupa – larger wire for bigger sizes. A bead head can also be added and used with or without the lead wire)
Ribbing: Fine wire, gold, silver, or copper for the desired color effect. Tying thread or monofilament clear or brown could also be used for other effects.
Woven Body: Select two colors of floss, embroidery yarn , or other satisfactory material for weaving, one light and one dark
