Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Fly Masters - PETER HOR­LOCK

HOOK: Size 8 long­shank THREAD: Orange 6/0 WEIGHT: Fine lead wire TAIL: Orange marabou BODY: 2mm white foam GILLS: Red marker pen EYES: 4mm domed eyes PETER SAYS: This sim­ple pat­tern has much in com­mon with the Crease Fly, a pop­u­lar salt wa­ter pat­tern. But while theEzyPik in has few com­po­nents there’ s el­e­gance in that sim­plic­ity. The body is formed from as trip of 2 mm thick white foam that’ s been folded over the hook and fixed with ad­he­sive. The foam is then cut into a fish shape be­fore the ad­di­tion of epoxy eyes plus a dab with a red marker pen to sug­gest gills.
