    What's not to like about a fly with this much peacock?; developed by John Perry of Missoula, MT. Couldn't find any instructions, but it seemed pretty easy to figure out a tying sequence that worked.

    hook - Tiemco 5212 #10
    thread - Uni 6/0 camel
    tail - elk hair
    body - peacock herl
    underwing - Krystal Flash pearl
    wing - elk hair
    thorax - peacock herl
    post - Congo Hair white
    hackle - grizzly

    mash barb, attach thread at 2/3 mark, wrap to point above barb

    wrap back to initial tie-in, clean/stack a clump of elk and measure for length (let it extend a bit more than hook gap width past the bend)

    trim to length, tie in and wrap back to point above hook barb

    tie in some peacock herl

    [IMG]


    twist herl with tying thread and wrap forward to initial tie-in; tie off/trim peacock

    tie in some Krystal Flash; fold it back over body

    clean/stack another, denser clump of elk and measure for length (let it extend to the tail)

    trim to length and tie in

    wrap wing with non-tox wire

    tie in a clump of Congo Hair (or your favorite sub); post it up and tie in hackle (shiny side out)

    tie in some more peacock herl at the hook eye

    [IMG]


    twist peacock with thread, create thorax (wrap back over wing tie-in) and finish with thread at base of post

    [IMG]


    grab hackle and start wrapping post from top down

    [IMG]


    cram as many wraps of hackle as you can; let it hang down, take 2 horizontal turns of thread at base of post

    half hitch x 2, SHHAN, trim KF and post and you're done
