HOOK: Size 8 heavy­weight wet fly THREAD: White TAIL: Red marabou and pearl Krys­tal Flash BODY: White deer hair coloured with marker pens EYES: 4mm light­weight dumb-bells FINS: Red and pearl Krys­tal Flash

PETER SAYS: Deer hair is one of the most pop­u­lar ma­te­ri­als when it comes to ty­ing float­ing fry im­i­ta­tion s so it came as a sur­prise that Michael Po lin’ s en­try was the only one that in­cor­po­rated it. The pat­tern is ac­tu­ally a scaled down ver­sion of the Deer Hair Perch Fry and very nicely ex­e­cuted with a well shaped body that isn’ t too bulky. The pat­tern is set off by a tail formed from a pinch of red marabou trimmed to aV-shape.
