Pink Squirrel SBS
Pink Squirrel SBS
Published by ted4887

Default Pink Squirrel SBS

Material List
Hook: Tiemco 2457 or equivalent sz 12-18
Bead: 2.4mm Gold
Thread: White, Black or red Danville 70 denier
Tail: Pearl Krystal Flash
Body: Fox Squirrel Dubbing
Ribbing: Red Copper Wire - size Brassie
Collar: UV Pink Ice Dub


Please note that this isn't in line with Bethke's original pattern. However, it is exactly how I prefer mine. Not much mess, and a very quick tie.




1: Start thread down to the hook bend.

2. Tie in Krystal Flash tail and red copper wire. (Do not worry about tail length. You can trim that later)

3. Dub squirrel onto thread at desired bugginess. (I prefer mine less spiky, although many prefer it extremely buggy.)

Great SBS! I tied up several exactly how you describe (did not have the Fox squirrel so went with the Hares Ear Plus dubbing). Deadly fly...fooled several nice Browns for me.
