Dahlberg Diver

Does anyone out there have the pattern and a photo of a Dahlberg? At this point color is unimportant. Just need the shape and construction.

I can reference you to these two pages:

http://www.umpqua.com/cgi-bin/flies....dSearch&page=2

http://www.umpqua.com/cgi-bin/flies....dSearch&page=3

At the bottom of page 2 and through the middle of page 3 there are about 8 or 9 pictures of these divers in various color combinations. The hook sizes can range from as small as a 2 or 4 to as large as 3/0 or 4/0, depending on the species that you're after. The tail is composed of marabou, bucktail, and some flash material. Grizzly hackles are added on the flanks, and the head and collar are tightly packed deer hair trimmed to shape. Weed guards are optional, but usually a necessity for bass and pike.

Oh yes, be sure to use strong tying thread, at least 3/0. It will make spinning the deer hair less frustrating.
