Fly Of The Month.

18329_1022948391052112_2098311029783676226_n Our first fly in a regular addition to our page is “The Green Sparkulator”

This is a variant of the good old fashioned “Stimulator” a great attractor fly for just about any place that the fish are feeding on the surface. The Sparkulator was designed and tied for fishing as a hopper pattern, however, like the Stimulator it can be used as a searching pattern,for fishing larger terrestrials, and is great as an indicator fly if fishing a nymph dropper.

Hook – TMC 200

Wing and tail – Bleached Elk Hair

Body and head – Hends Spectra dubbing (green)

Rib -Fine red copper wire

Hackle – Fine Dun

This can be tied in a variety of sizes from 8 to 16.

my favourite size to tie and fish this pattern is 12 – 16.

Happy Tying!

Ant.
