This week’s submission comes from Robb Nicewonger, it is a streamer pattern called Ferb’s Fancy (I love that name!). Robb did not include a lot of details about the pattern but the photos he included clearly indicates that the fly works!
Hook: Sabre #7380 Size 4 (4xl, std wire)
Thread: fluorescent fire orange
Tail: FTD ET Glow Fibers, Orange
Body: Ice Yarns, Safari eyelash yarn, pink/white or orange/white
Collar: Stalcup’s starburst dubbing, light shrimp orange
Bead: Plastic craft store, translucent pink
Step 1: Debarb hook and add plastic bead.
Step 2: Tie in tail material. Start right behind the bead and wrap back to the bend. (Tail will be trimmed to length after body is completed).
Step 3: Tie in yarn. Do this right behind the bead and wrap back to the bend.
Step 4: “Palmer” the yarn forward, being sure to pull all of the fibers rearward as you go.
Step5: Tie off behind the bead and secure with several tight wraps. Superglue the wraps and whip finish.
Step6: Add a sparse dubbed collar, and whip finish.
