Poor's Helgy

Hook: Your Favorite
Thread: Black
Weight: Lead or Lead Free Wire
Tail & Body: Moose Body Hair
Rib: Tying Thread
Thorax: Tan Chenille (top side colored by brown marker)
Legs: Brown Hackle (either cock or hen)

Tying note: The above fly is tied "in the round" style. It is perfectly OK if you want to trim the hackle fibers away from the top of the fly.

It asked if I would snap a selfie for the board so I obliged. The post has a couple too many wraps but oh well bet it will still catch fish.

I really like that white marabou coachman variant, calftail. Really cool and beautiful as usual. And the "tweener" looks quite interesting but I can't quite tell what is going on there...a Griff's gnat body with quill wing coachman coming out its butt?

William, I love the Lil' bugger, I love fishing them and your tie is very nice. Are you using a grizzly saddle hackle? It looks good. Ever try a hen hackle?
