PT Jingler
(a pheasant tail "stiff hackle" variation)
Hook - Daiichi Model 1740 / Size 12 (Turned Up Eye wet nymph hook - 2X-Heavy)
Thread - 8/0 UNI-Thread (Red)
Collar Hackle - Hungarian Partridge (Dyed Blue Dun)
Thorax Hackle - Hebert Miner Wet Fly Hackle (Hen Neck / Natural Medium Grey Dun)
Tag/Rib - Fine Gold Wire
Rear Body - Pheasant Tail Fibers (dyed Olive)
Thorax - Peacock Herl Fibers (Natural)
Head - Tying thread coated in SHHAN clear nail polish

Tying Sequence - Organized Chaos
This looks crazy and complex, but it is really quite easy and efficient. The wrapping sequence creates bullet proof body, with each section reinforced by the tying sequence.

[*]Tye in the materials in the following order (partridge hackle, hen hackle, peacock fibers, wire rib, pheasant tail fibers). Work from the front (hook eye) to the back (bend) and then wrap the tying thread to the middle of the hook shank. The rear body material is wrapped forward (first counter wrapping the pheasant tail fibers, then the wire tag/rib). Secure the wire rib, then wrap the peacock herl and hen hackle to the middle of the hook shank. Wrap the thread forward thru the thorax (reinforcing the hen hackle and peacock herl). Wrap the partridge hackle collar. Whip finish and your done.

Rince & repeat...

Tye in all the materials

Wrap the pheasant tail fibers forward

Wrap the wire forming the rear tag and spiral rib

Image

Wrap the peacock herl rearward, to the middle of the hook shank.
Image

Wrap the hen hackle over the thorax, then wrap the thread forward thru the hackle
Image

Wrap the partridge hackle rearward, forming the front collar. Tye off. Form a neat head and trim off the thread.

Ray, whatever your day job is, quit. Just stay home and design new flies for us to copy. If you need incentive, I can contribute ten dollars and a roll of Quilted Northern TP a week. Brilliant fly and so well executed with a tutorial anyone could follow. Well done!

Ray,
I agree with Ron—time to quit your day job and just tie flies.
This is a great tutorial, very easy to follow, in you organized chaos.

Ray, no one has communicated the process of tying a fly better. This really is an essay and damn nice pattern. :D
