Neat variation on Jack Gartside's Sparrow, for those spawners coming up from Hebgen Lake. Name came from a pheasant that came out on the wrong end of an encounter with a coyote.


hook - Dai Riki 280 #8
thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
rib - small wire copper
undertail - Congo Hair tan
tail - pheasant tail
abdomen - dubbing rusty orange
underwing/shroud - Congo Hair tan
thorax/head - pheasant aftershaft
hackle - pheasant rump



mash barb, start thread; tie in rib, wrap to point above point

Image


measure (tips to bend) a clump of CH; tie in/wrap to 2/3 mark

Image

Image


measure (hook length) some PT fibers; tie in/trim butts

Image

Image


dub thread/dub abdomen

Image

Image


counterwrap rib; helicopter end, cover with thread

Image

Image


pull CH back surrounding body; tie down/trim

Image

Image


select a couple aftershaft feathers; split thread, insert, spin bobbin

Image

Image

Image

Image


moisten fingers and stroke fibers back; take a few wraps

Image

Image


tie in (folded) hackle by tip; wrap forward, stroking fibers back, tie off/trim

Image

Image


Take a few more wraps of aftershaft in front; whip finish, SHHAN

Scott,

Your tutorials are top notch, and your tying is very efficient. Superbly done, as always. Thank you for sharing another "fishy" pattern. Very much appreciated. ;)

ScottP, Howdy;

Beautiful, simply ... beautiful. Whenever I see this quality of work I wish i started tying at a
very much younger age then I did. So much to learn and me on the short end of the stick ...

Thanks for sharing this.

Excellent.

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.
