Category Steelhead

Black 3/0 Monocord

Tail Black Australian Possum Tail

Red Chenille

Wing Black Australian Possum Tail in 3 sections

Hob Nailed Boot was tied by Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.   See Bill's notes below, but also read more about him, and see many more of his flies at The Flies of William Lovelace.

Bill's Notes: Created by John Morton of Christchurch. Each wing section gets larger and longer as you tie forward. Also the wing fibers are spread around the top of the shank with pressure from a finger as you tie the wing section. The possum tail fibers are very soft so rabbit or arctic fox would be a better substitute than squirrel.
