Fly Swap #1 - Doc Duprey

This is my version of Jack Gartside's famous "Gartside Gurgler". It's my "go to" fly when the fish are feeding close to the surface. It makes a bit less commotion than a popper, and works well when the fish force bait (sand eels, bunker, silversides) to the top. Tie it in any color you want...Jack does!

Hook: Tiemco 800S 1/0 (or similar)

ThreadL White Uni Big Fly 3/0

Tail: bucktail, tied sparse, with a few strands of flashabou (tied with the long end hanging over the hook eye)

Underbody: Orvis (or similar) foam (make sure it floats!) tied along shank of hook, and pulled around shank with thread, left long over bend of hook. I cut the foam to be about 1 hook gape wide, and this seems to work well.

Hackle:strung hackle, folded, tied in by tip and palmer wrapped to eye using as much of the soft, fuzzy part as possible.

Shellback: long end of foam (left from tying underbody) pulled up to eye and left long.

Stripe: flashabou (left from tying in tail), pulled over shellback and tied in

Lip: trim excess foam to about 1/2 to 3/4 of hook gape and leave down over eye.

Fish with gentle stripsor a continuous retrieve and HOLD ON!

Best regards,

Steve "Doc" Duprey
