Here is one of my favorite flies to tie, variant of famous Finnish dry fly Nalle Puh,Winnie the Pooh. Here is the version called Nallukka, have done some raccoon colored too, grizzly and gray…
Hook, Kamasan b175 #8
Thread, UTC Orange
Wing, Raccoon Tail Natural, fluffy under hair what you can find from stem of the tail, cut to taper so you can get better profile for body.
Body, Mix of Orange Hare and some Honey/yellow color fine dry fly dubbing
Hackle, 2x Metz #1 Dry fly Saddle, First one from back to front, second from start back of the wing and back to start, use some fine gold on ribbing so the hackle will survive more fishes!
