Sedge Tying instructions

Hook: Dry Fly size 10-12, 2X long shank
Body: Dubbing of fur & synthetics, bright green or mix of olive/gold.
Tail/Wings : Elk hair, I used the rump hair which is really white/cream and very krinkly. Tie in the tail and overwrap the hook with the stubs up to the eye. This shapes the body and helps in floatation. Repeat the overwrap for the rear wing. The middle wing is trimmed close to the shank. Cut the front end wing butts of to form a stubby head, just like the EHC.
Head: Peacock herl, wrapping behind the elk butts that stand out in front.
