La D22 SBS

Found this one on a French site; I'll have to get my son to translate for me. Made a few mods due to materials at hand - grizzly instead of CDL for the tail (don't got none) and hen pheasant breast for mallard (2700 miles away; also like the markings on the pheasant). Cool fly; change colors to suit your needs.


hook - Dai Riki 320 #14
thread - MFC 8/0 sand
tail - grizzly
abdomen - goose biot yellow
hackle - dun
collar - hen pheasant breast


mash barb, start thread, wrap to point above barb and create a small bump

Image


even tips on a clump of hackle barbs; measure (shank length) and tie in

Image

Image


tie in (moistened) biot, notch side down; wrap to 50% mark, tie off/trim

Image

Image


tie in hackle; wrap forward (leave one hook eye width behind eye)

Image

Image


prep pheasant breast feather, tie in by tip

Image

Image


take a few turns, tie off/trim, SHHAN

Image

Took it for a test drive later in the morning; March Browns and grey drakes are supposed to be out and about, neither of which this one resembles but all I need is one stupid fish.

from here on, we're legal

stupid fish found (biggest cutt I've ever caught on this water; maybe a run-up?)

I've played with that style before. Both with hackle at the thorax and palmered. Only had luck with a tiny palmered one that resembled a Griffith's Gnat. Glad to see your experience was different. I like the style. Great photos and that cut is a beaut!
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Excellent! I'm like Carl on this one, love the style but never had much luck with it. I'll probably have to give this another go!

Beautiful pictures too, Scott :) I'm jealous.

Scott - If you use The Google Chrome browser, it will automatically translate the French websites. There are several European websites I visit and use Chrome to do the translation. It's not perfect, but I can generally understand the full meaning behind the translated text.

Nice tutorial and stretch of water. Thanks for taking us along.

Found a duck breast feather while taking a walk; decided to try tying a March Brown (dun tail, dark tan biot body)

That aught to fool even the smart fish. ;)

Nice!

Scott, I meant to try this style a while ago when we were in a Jingler phase, but never go to it. This has a lot going for it and I can see why it presented well in those conditions. Such special water you have there. I like the followup as well. Maybe I will get to try some of these this season. Nice SBS.
