The Cinberg

Hook - Dry fly style
Thread - Tan
Tail - Brown spade hackle fibers
Body - Tan/cream dubbing
Hackle - Brown or dark ginger fronted with wood duck. The WD is not wound like the hackle, it is tyed on first with the tips pointing forward, the rest of the fly is tied, tail, body and hackle, then after tying off the hackle the wood duck is pulled back, the thread wound through to the eye, and the wood duck gets worked back with a thread dam in front of it, forcing it back towards the hackle.

Miss Pinky

Hook - Curved style
Body*- Pink floss with clear vinyl “D” rib over the top. Palmered with white ostrich herl. To add durability to the fly, use a dubbing loop on the ostrich.
Hackle - Hungarian partridge
Head - Peacock herl

* I used clear flat tinsel in lieu of "D" rib and applied a stripe of uv resin on top of the body to secure the ostrich herl
