Tiny Shuttlecock

A fly for the times when the Grayling play it difficult and get selective on emerging olives. Depending on how you grease it with CDC oil it could imitate an emerger (only the tuft greased) or a stillborn (whole fly greased).


The tie:
#18 Hanák 130 BL
17/0 UNI Trico Thread white
Mink dubbing Light Olive
very thin copper wire ribbing
Australian Opossum mixed with Claret UV flash for thorax
2 CDC feathers for the tuft
