Fly of the Month

April 2015





Cripple patterns are proven fish catching flies. In an earlier Fly of the Month a purple cripple pattern was featured . I had some sample dubbings that I ordered from Fly Tyers Dungeon (www.flytyersdungeon.com), the sample packs had 17 different dubbings, but one color caught my eye, it was PINK! I thought this color tied as a cripple might work, here is the pattern I came up with, the pink cripple.

Hook - Dry Fly #14, #16
Thread - Lt. Cahill 8/0
Shuck - Ginger Zelon
Body - Pink Dubbing
Wing - White Poly Pro
Hackle - LT. Ginger ( cut the hackle on the bottom even with the hook point)
