This little fella and about 5 million of his little friends were flying around on the south platte near mineral. I was a bit caught off guard since they were so small. I simply did not have anything that small in my box. I had to tie some. I think Phile Iwane's Iwan-E-Dunn will be just the ticket.
This is a favorite of mine to tie. The abdomen is mono filament wrapped with olive thread. The tails are paint brush bristles. A short post creates the wings and a bit of grizzly hackle creates the legs over the dubbed thorax. I tie these on a size 22 emerger hook, but actually the size of the fly is determined by the length of the Abdomen. Stay tuned for a video showing how to tie these. #TightLines #Tiedforapurpose #jeffputsthatcraponeverything.
