Tied By Padraic Farrell (Cabin Adams)
Hook: Standard dry fly
Tail: Red floss
Body: Adams gray superfine dubbing
Overwing: Squirrel Tail (I use the hair from the base of the tail, as these hairs are short and still have the characteristic mottling of color)
Wing: I omit this in smaller sizes, but I use Antron for visibility
Hackle: Grizzly (I often trim the bottom)
A tip to make the fly a bit more durable... Reverse hackle the fly and rib the hackle. The steps for that are; I tie the hackle in so that the feather is extending out over the eye. Then I wrap back over the stem toward the overwing. This ties in the feather. When I hackle the fly, I again work back toward the overwing and tie that down. Before clipping the excess feather off, I work the tying thread back to the eye. Wiggling the thread keeps the feather fibers from getting tied down. Then I whip finish at the front and clip off all the excess from the thread and hackle feather.
