How to make a crochet body on the fly.....
 
This is a step by step of Crocheting (not shure how to pronounce it).

I`ve used far thicker antron yarn than normaly is used, just so it can be
shown well on the picture.

When you do this, split the antron yarn in 1/3 of the original thcikness or adjust it so you get the thickness that you want.

If you use to colors make shure the color you want on top of the fly comes on the right side of the hook

TURN THE VISE AROUND TOWARDS YOU, WITH THE HOOK EYE POINTING DIRECTLY TOWARDS YOU. MAKE A LOOP WITH THE DARK YARN (TOP YARN) OVER THE HOOK AND UNDER THE YARN ON THE OTHER SIDE.

TAKE THE CROCHET NEEDLE DOWN TO THE LOOP HOLE, UNDER THE HOOK AND GO UP AND GET THE YARN ON THE OTHER SIDE. TAKE IT WITH YOU THROUG THE LOOP ON THE DOWNSIDE OF THE HOOK.

The picture quality could be better, it quite a long time since i made this, and the picture has gone through to many edits, that has killed pixels.....
Hope you will understand this step by step, my english is kind of rusty when it comes to explaining stuff.....

Terje!
