|Run thread from eye and do touching turns to rear of hook, i used a size 12 Partridge but a size 10 would be better for the spinners i saw..|
|Take three tails of coypu and tie in with between 2inch and |
three inch overhang at the rear of the hook.
Take the thread inbetween each tail to seperate them so they
do not touch together.
|3....Take some light brown cdc and dub in at the base of the hook, from studying the natural it has a clear dark brown patch at the rear, this is optional as i caught the same without this but still could be the difference on a hard day..make sure exess coypu is still at the rear as this will be wound up later..|
|4....Take a good pinch of white cdc dubbing and|
work into the thread, it looks scruffy here
Dub upto just behind the eye..
|5...Once dubbed grab the excess tails of coypu and |
wind up to form a rib like in the natural, this also gives the fly very good strength and pulls any excess cdc into shape.
Tie off the coypu with your thread..
|6....This is how the fly should look at this stage...|
|7....Now tie in two cdc plumes lined up together and tie in on one side of the hook as shown, do figure of eight turns and give it some stick to hold well in place..make the wings large just lik the natural..|
|8...Now trim off the waste cdc at the other end to form the first wing...sweet..|
|9....Now take two more cdc plumes and repeat the same process as tying the other wing, make sure to tighten in well so the wing will not fall out while fishing...|
|10....This is how the wings should look when tied in and trimmed...notuce the wings tied flat, these will be worked upto the natural postition on the next stage...|
