All these patterns are simple to tie , made to fish not to be exposed in shop windows and have been used for many years on many different waters and fish.

materials needed:rooster hackle,thread,synthetic fibers,little piece of plastic tube from a ballpen.Sorry some pics are not...great
First take some hackle fibers from a big feather to make the tail.
fix the hackle near the eye .
Use some synthetic fibers to make the wings ,hold the hackle to make the head.
Turn the hackle about one third of the hook,block it.
Bring the thread near the tail and put the little piece of plastic tube.
Finish the body.
Cut the thread ,put a drop of superglue and spread it on the body(nicer and stronger)It's over!
You can use the same technique to tie different patterns ....just choose the colors of thread,hackle and wings you want...
