Default How do I make a crochet body on the fly.

Instructions and Pictures courtesy of dryfly purist.

This is a step by step of Crocheting (not sure how to pronounce it).

I`have used far thicker antron yarn than normally 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 thickness or adjust it so you get the thickness that you want.

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