Lingren's Olive SBS

Ira Lingren developed some buggy-looking, easy-to-tie nymphs that catch fish; can't ask for more than that. Here's the olive version; change colors to suit your needs.

hook - Mustad 3906B #14
thread - Danville 6/0 black
rib - wire x-small gold
tail - black hackle fibers
abdomen - marabou olive
thorax -peacock herl
hackle - hen black


mash barb and attach thread and wire; keep tag end of wire on far side of hook while wrapping thread to point above hook barb

Image

Image


measure some hen hackle barbs (hook gap past the bend) and tie in

Image



tie in some marabou fibers (keep it sparse) and wrap body up to 60% mark

Image

Image

Image


tie in some peacock; twist together and wrap thorax

Image

Image


counterwrap ribbing through body; helicopter and tie off

Image


prep hen hackle; tie in by tip

Image

Image


wrap hackle, tie off/trim (take a few barbs off the underside); half hitch x 2, SHHAN

Scott

Thanks, Scott. This one should appeal to my little panfish buddies. Can't wait to wrap a few and try them out.
