A Swarm of Bugs

The Long Standard


Replenishing the box after the beating my son put on it. An unassuming little hair popper that never lets me down.



 Recipe
Hook: 3XL Dry Fly #6
Thread: Black 6/0 Uni-thread
Tail: 2 pair Grizzly Saddle
Tail: 2 pair Olive/Black Centipede Legs
Body: Natural and Dark Brown Deer hair
(Bottom of body is clipped flush with the hook)

I vary between a 50/50 body or a Brown center stripe
