Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Fly Masters - AL­LAN MA­SON

HOOK: Size 10 ex­tra long­shank THREAD: White 10/0 TAIL: Nat­u­ral chick­abou plumes UN­DER­BODY: 2mm tan craft foam BODY: Medium black holo­graphic my­lar tub­ing EYES: 3mm 3D epoxy eyes GILL SLITS: Red sweet wrap­per PETER SAYS: Al­lan Ma­son’ s Float­ing Foam Fry uses a well tried method to form a slim, sparkling fry im­i­ta­tion. The buoy­ant part of the fly comes from as trip of 2 mm thick craft foam fixed along the hooks hank. This is then cov­ered with black medium-width holo­graphic my­lar tub­ing which adds a beau­ti­ful un­der­stated spark le along with a dis­tinct scale-like ef­fect. One last lit­tle touch is the use of strip so fred sweet wrap­per to sug­gest gills.
