The Beef Jerky

BJ_RbillyB_thelot

I started out tying this streamer unweighted and then two versions, the last one with a tungsten cone in size large just behind the eyes. The BJ will perform well in both versions but a weighted BJ will “start to fish” sooner after it has hit the water. The fact that the cone is placed apox. 5-6 mm behind the hook eye, and not directly behind it, makes the BJ to kinda “hoover” when you pause the retrieve, instead of diving…and yes, BJ looks rather bulky, but it will slim down in the stream.

Untitled-01

Trailer Hook: 8 strands of Flashabou Holo on Gamakatsu B10S/F314.

Untitled-02

Fold the flashabou, tie it backwards and trim the strand to uneven lenghts.

Untitled-03

Senyo’s Fusion Dub. Or any flashy dubbing longer than one inch.

Untitled-04

Fold the dubbing, tie it backwards.

Untitled-05

Rabbit strip. You want aprox. 5mms of the skin behind the hook bend but of course, this is only a matter of taste.

Untitled-06

Grizzly schappen.

Untitled-07

Fill the dubbing loop with Senyo’s Fusion Dub.

Untitled-08

Wind it.

Untitled-09

Hackle it. Use a needle or/and brush to get the dubbing out.

Untitled-10

Split the hackle/dubbing to both sides and fold the rabbit strip over and finish this trailer hook off.

Untitled-11

Put the tungsten cone on the Gamakatsu B10S/F314 hook. Attach wire and one 6mm bead and the trailer hook.

Untitled-12

Fusion Dub.

Untitled-13

Pinch down and fold dubbing on both sides of the hook.

Untitled-14.jpg

The rabbit strip’s skin should end where the trailer hook’s strip “starts”.

Untitled-15

Repeat the trailer hook’s dubbing and schlappen.

Untitled-16

Stop here…remember to save some room for rabbit strips and laser dub in front of the conehead…How much? Look ahead in this SBS.

Untitled-17

Hackle and whip it. Do NOT cut the thread!

Untitled-18

Move the thread to the front of the cone from under. If you do this, the pressure from the thread will press the cone downwards and enhance chance for the fly to travel “upright”.

Untitled-19

Rabbit strip. Press hard.

Untitled-20

Rabbit strip of a lighter color. “Skin end” should be as short as possible without tearing apart.

Untitled-21

Tight and cut it.

Untitled-22

Fly-Rite mixed with SLF Prism (!). Or Senyo’s Laser Dub.

Untitled-23

Fold and stripe!

Untitled-24

One more layer of Oskar Hagelin’s secret blend 😉 just behind the hook eye.

Untitled-25

Stripe it!

Untitled-26

8mm eyes of your choise.

And remember…anything under size 4 is a wet fly!

The Left Handed Monkey Wrench

The LHMW is all about imballance. The three tungsten beads placed at the very back of the long streamer front hook enhances the side to side motion made by the thin cutting head.

LHMW shuold be fished with hard short strips to make it jerk, belly flash, go up and down, side to side…

The Fugazi Streamer11947498_10153634529041385_3354974728140144247_n

By my book the rabbit strip is the sexiest flytying material out there. You can get in all the colors of the rainbow, it has got a ton of movement and its easy to work with. You can simply tie one on a streamer hook and then head out to the stream. The Fugazi Streamer on the other hand has a couple of more steps before its finished. Inspired by the Articulated Provo Hooker of Finpusher it has got strips both over and under the hook shank giving it its full bodied design.

The front hook is an Owner flip’n’pitch type of hook no.5304-118 in size 1/0 but you can of course us any jig hook for this pattern.

Fugazi_A

Fugazi_B

Fugazi_F

Pinch the chenille downwards and the rabbit strip is tied in.

There are a hole lot of great articulated streamer patterns out there and several of them just a variation of the other. One streamer that somewhat stands out from the crowd is Michael Schmidt’s “Grumpy Muppet”. Not only by the way it looks but also by its way in the water.

The movement of this fly, well, for me, its the go to fly…
