    A little bit easier to tie than the Carnage Paradrake (although harder to create a tapered body), especially in smaller sizes; body's durable and it floats as well. Adjust colors to suit your needs.

    hook - Dai Riki 125 #14
    thread - UTC 140 tan
    tail - moose hair
    body - 1mm foam
    wing post - Congo Hair white
    hackle - barred cream
    thorax - dubbing tan

    For a smaller sized fly like this one, I used the thinnest pin I could find to create the body

    start thread on pin

    clean and stack a few moose body hairs

    [IMG]


    tie the moose hairs on the pin

    [IMG]


    poke a hole in foam strip

    [IMG]


    slide foam onto the pin up to tie in point

    [IMG]


    fold foam on either side of pin and adjust thread to start body

    a couple soft wraps to create 1st segment

    [IMG]


    split the uprights and move thread into position for next segment

    repeat, lather, rinse, repeat

    half hitch at the last segment and slide the body off the pin; brush a little Sally on the thread wraps

    [IMG]


    mash down the hook barb and attach thread, wrap back to spot above hook point

    [IMG]


    tie body down on top of hook

    [IMG]

    brush a little Super Glue, and wrap thorax

    tie in a hank of Congo Hair and post up; then tie in hackle

    dub thorax

    [IMG]


    start wrapping hackle from the top of the post down

    [IMG]

    [IMG]


    let the hackle hang down; take 2 turns of thread at base of post, trapping hackle

    [IMG]


    half hitch x2 at hook eye, SHHAN, trim wing post and you're done
