Michigan’s first big fly. Late May to mid-July peaking usually the first two weeks of June.
Hook: 2x streamer hook size 10
Wing: Medium elk hair tied upright
Body: Light natural deer hair tied along the hook shank leaving it flared at the end
Hackle: One grizzly and one brown tied parachute
Tail: Moose hair
Instruction: Tie on the tail and wrap tread forward to tie on the wing in post form. Tie on the body along the shank to the bend and leave a flair past the bend but not to the end of the tail. Wrap forward creating a cross pattern of thread and tie in hackle parachute style and form a clean head.
Note: This fly brings out the lunkers and is extremely effective at dusk and later.
