Crane Fly Soft Hackle

By Greg Meyer
Hook: TMC 101  #14 -16
Thread: 8/0 Yellow Uni
Thorax: Small ball of sulphur orange superfine to splay the soft hackle
Body: Trout Hunter yellow goose biot (can substitute yellow or cream dry fly dubbing with copper wire rib)
Tail/shuck: Zelon (brown or gray) fibers
Hackle: 1-2 turns over-sized light dun hen neck

NOTE: Drop this behind a Sulphur dry fly. Sometimes, especially on the Rush the trout are keyed on yellow crane flies. If not, it looks like a sulphur emerger too.
