Default I'm Not Sure What This Pattern Is???

Here's something that I just tied on a whim the other night that tuned out pretty cool. It's like a soft hackle nymph. But I'm using a "gimp-feather" as the hackle. This is going to be a long post with instructions etc.

The "NO-NAME-FOR-NOW-FLY":

Here's what it looks like:


Here are the materials I used:

Hook- TMC 200R #12


Thread- Uni-Thread 6/0 Olive


Ribbing- Ultra Wire SM Copper Brown


Dubbing- Hareline Caddis Green


Hackle- Olive Gimp-Feather From An Olive Died Pheasant



Step-By-Step:

1. Start the thread at the eye and wrap back to the start of the barb. Be sure to make all of the turns touch the one before it.


2. Lay a piece of the wire along the hook shank (I keep the wire on top, it doesn't really matter), and start to wrap touching turns.


3. Wrap all the way back up to the eye with touching turns. At the eye wrap back maybe 1.5 to 2 hook-eyes with another layer of touching turns.


4. Tie in the gimp feather so it sticks out to the front.


5. Wrap the wire forward. You can use wide wraps or close wraps.


6. Wrap the wire right to the back of the small extra layer and tie it off.


7. Dub a small (very very small) amount of dubbing to the thread.


8. Wrap that on top of the small extra layer.


9. Wrap the gimp feather right in-front of the dubbing 2-3 times.


10. Tie the gimp feather off and wrap back over the feathers a little bit.


11. Whip finish and cut thread. (You can use head cement but be VERY CAREFUL. I messed up one of these flies by putting to much on. It soaks the feathers and makes them look bad.)


There it is. Have fun with it.

Gimp-feather? Is that hackle webbing? Looks pretty classic in the 'classic wet fly' sense. Nice evenly turned ribbing. Dyin to hear more!!!

The gimp-feather is the feather underneath the main feather. I know it's on pheasants ut I'm not sure what else. I'll work on the rest of this now.
