This fly pattern and SBS are contributed to Anil. He was kind enough to take time out from hitting the local beaches to do this up for us. Anil runs a local shop called Puget Sound Fly Co. and are one of the site's sponsors. Thanks Anil! Recipe: TUBE: HMH Small plastic tubing THREAD: Uni 3/0 CONEHEAD: Spirit River Crosseyed Cone 3/8” nickel EYES: 3.0 3D eyes BELLY: White Farrar Blend BODY: White Farrar Blend with Opal Polar Flash BACK: Grey Farrar blend WING: Black Holographic Flashabou blended with: Purple, royal blue, chartreuse and black peacock herl This fly can be done in three sizes: Small (roughly 2.5" 3+ weight rods) Medium (4"-5" 7+weight rods) Large (5+" 10+ weight rods) This SBS is for a Medium size Shock and Awe STEP 1: cut tube to 1 ¼ “ length and melt rear end (not yours, just the tube) STEP 2: On top of the tube, tie in a clump of polarflash and Farrar blend half of the desired amount, fold over and taper to desired shape and length. This will be the longest portion of the fly, so determine overall length now. STEP 3: Repeat step 2 with Grey Farrar blend, making this clump slightly shorter. STEP 4: Blend black Holo Flashabou and mixture of peacock herl. Tie this in with the tips facing forward and roughly 80% of overall length of the fly. STEP 5: Tie in a clump of Peacock Farrar blend with material extending both forward and rearward. STEP 6: Tie in a clump of White Farrar blend (roughly 50% of overall fly length) directly underneath the tube. STEP 7: Fold back all of the material that is extending forward of the tubing and slide conehead over. STEP 8: Melt front of tubing while forcing the cone against the tie in area STEP 9: Hang the completed fly by the tail and fill conehead with rod-builders epoxy, add junction tubing and fish... Enjoy!
