Fly Tying : Egans Rainbow Warrior

Fly Tying : Egans Rainbow Warrior

Euro Nymph Czech Nymph Jig Hook

1. Starting the thread at the bead, proceed the thread to the bend of the hook. Tie in a few CDL fibers for the tail. In wide wraps proceed thread to the bead. 

2. Take 4" piece of pearl tinsel and secure it behind the bead. Then take your thread and secure it in wide wraps back to the base of the tail. 

3. After securing your tinsel, take your thread back to the bead in wide wraps. 

4. Add a small drop of glue to the thread.

5. Wrap tinsel up to the bead.

6. Add a small amount of Light Rainbow Scud Dubbing to the thread. 
I cut my dubbing before adding it to the thread. Makes it easier to work with. Finish dubbing close to the bead. Whip finish.
