    I will try to make step by step the Rena-fly.
    This is part one of two.
    1. The material list. Dubbing, polypropylene yarn, melting glue, hackle
    2. Dubb the body
    3. Place the yarn under the hook shank.
    4. Secure the post and mount the hackle as a parachute
    5. Cut a small bit of the melting glue.

    The step by step Rena-fly Part 2 of 2
    6. Place the small bit of melting glue on a needle. Melt it with a lighter.
    7. Place the melted glue on the front of the post
    8. Wet your finger with your tongue. Press down the hot glue with your finger. You will not burn if you use salvia but you will burn if you use water on your finger.
    9. Finished fly from side.
    10. Finished fly from bottom
