Deeky's Sea Sick Roach

Found this on the Flytying Forum; seems to share chromosomes with the Stayner Ducktail. Supposedly a bass fly; like the Ducktail, should work as a stillwater trout fly, too.

hook - Daiichi 2461 #6
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
rib - small wire copper
body - mylar tinsel copper
underwing - fox squirrel tail
hackle - pheasant breast
wing - mallard flank dyed olive (1tbsp Rit Golden Yellow, 1tsp Rit Dark Green, 1 cup water)


Regards,
Scott

Scott,
Another great looking pattern from your vice! I like the overall look of the wing and how the other ingredients play into it....or under it! Very well constructed my friend!

Excellent job, Scott. Looks like it might be a good steelhead fly as well.
