Stone's Olive Floating Nymph
OK, so the name needs work, but here is the basics
Hook: TMC 2487 G (gold emerger) Size 14
Thread: Olive 8/0 Unithread
Body: Olive marabu (cut from barb and used as dubbing)
Wings: White Dog Hair Ball (or white Buck-Tail would work)
Tie on behind the eye as normal.
Cut the soft barbs from a marabu feather and apply as dubbing to the line.
Wrap down body and back up to behind the eye.
Dub on the white hair and roll into a tight ball to sit on the top of the fly.
Secure ball at top and whip finish.
Voiala, you have it, and it caught a fish on the first cast, so it can't be all that bad!
I will post a pick as soon as I can figure out how to make the autofocus on my new camera work for the real close pictures!!!!
