Notes/Steps

This was my first fly, hence the home materials.

I started winding the thread near the eye of the hook with a little superglue, added the oval body but only attached it with the thread at the front using tight winds to hold it down then light winding to about half way and then back to the eye. A few more tight wraps with superglue, then added the wings criscrossing over the wings and winding tight near the eyes again. Added superglue to the string and cut the excess line.

Suggested Rod/Reel/Line

5-6 weight

Nice FLy there I like the oval body and your wings look great. Great for a first fly. Now go out and slay some gills.
