CLARET SEDGE­HOG

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - DRY-FLY ON PITSFORD -

Hook Size 10-12 Fulling Mill All-pur­pose Medium Thread Black Body Fiery-claret seal fur Wing Four or five sparse bunches of deer hair Hackle Claret hen Try to keep the bunches of hair per­pen­dic­u­lar over the hook shank with as lit­tle drift and flare as pos­si­ble. This is best ac­com­plished by stroking the dub­bing up and over the wing roots. Do not dub the thread while it lies on top of the hair roots. Take the thread for­ward on to the hook shank and dub back­wards on to the wing roots.
