Only a few left to go hopefully these will get some good use as a winter fly.

With all the step by steps, I thought I'd try one, though it's an easy fly. Sorry some of the pics are out of focus...

It's my version of a zebra sugar cube fly. It can be fished in the film as an emerger, but I found it most effective trailing behind a beadhead nymph. Can also be tied parachute style and is great in olive.

Materials:

Hook: Umpqua 202 size 18
Thread: 12/0 black
Tail: White antron yarn divided in half
Abdomen: black thread
Ribbing: 6/0 white thread ribbing (makes subtle ribbing, 3/0 more pronounced)
Sugar cube: white foam strip
Hackle: black, whiting's 100's size 24

Click the image to open in full size.

1. Lay down thread base all the way down the curve of the hook shank

2. Tie in antron yard tail and 6/0 white tying thread then advance thread up about 3/4 up the shank. Tie in foam strip leaving about one hook eye in front of it.

Click the image to open in full size.

3. Wrap white tying thread up the shank for ribbing and trim antron tail as a trailing shuck. Tie in the hackle behind the foam strip and pack thread wraps in front of the foam strip to help it stand up.

4. 2 to 3 turns of hackle behind the foam and tie it off. Trim and whip finish.

I had some time while my daughter napped this afternoon and got mine tied. Now just to get to the post office before the deadline.

Here is a sneak peak and first dry run of the Hares Ear Flash. Getting back into tying nymphs I need to focus on spacing and cleaner messy dubbining. The head needs to be cleaned up a bit, I know. But I like the bling. Sorry about the crappy photo skills. iphone doesn't like close ups.

Well, I finished the Hares Ear Flash.
Thankfully they are a bit of a shaggy pattern, cover any mistakes. Pictures don't really show the bling.
I'll be sending them out next week. Crossing a border can inevitably take more time.

Materials were quite straight forward.
hooks: #12 streamer hooks
thread: tan
tail: red squirrel
body: Ice Dub Holog Gold
wrap: round gold tinsel
wing case:Pearlescent Sheet

Hope they stack up to all the incredible tiers here.
