Tying The Wiggle Stone
Step 1: Place any No. 12 to No. 14 down-eye dry-fly hook on your vise. Attach 6/0 black thread to the hook, wind to the rear of the hook and create a small ball with your tying thread.( The down-eye hook improves the motion of the tail.)
Step 2: Attach a black goose biot on each side of the thread ball and secure. Tail length should be roughly a quarter-inch.
Step 3: Tie in a 3-inch-long piece of 5X mono and allow it to hang off the back of the tail. Dub a small and even or slightly tapered body with black rabbit fur.
Step 4: Take the mono and rib the body with even wraps toward the hook eye, then secure with thread. To finish the tail, create a small thread head, whip finish and cut the tying thread.
Step 5: Cut the rear of the hook off as close to the tail as possible.
Step 6: Place a Daiichi X120 No. 10 or No. 12 hook in your vise and attach 6/0 black thread to the hook as seen above. Tie in a 3-inch piece of 8-pound mono or Berkley FireLine (tyers choice) and allow to hang to the rear.
Step 7: Thread the mono through the bottom of the tail hook's eye and create a horizontal loop on top of the hook. Secure the tag end of the mono with several wraps of thread and add a dab of superglue.
Note: Loop should be as small as possible but should not interfere with the tail moving freely up and down or side to side.
Step 8: Tie in a 1-inch piece of flashy pearl tinsel, flashback material or scud back. Next dub on a ball of Hareline's Peacock Ice Dub as seen above.
Step 9: Pull the flashback wingcase over the peacock ice dubbing and secure with several wraps of thread. Place a black goose biot on each side of the thorax and build a small thread head. Whip finish and cut the thread.
Final: The Completed Senyo's Wiggle Stone. Change the thorax color to mix and match different bugs and water conditions. Popular thorax colors are steely blue, chartreuse, orange, pink, cream, yellow, rust, UV pearl and and shrimp pink. All dubbing colors are Ice Dubbing from Hareline..
