John Sand: Ulrik

  • Hook: #10-14
  • Body: 1/2 flat copper, 1/2 green wool
  • Hackle: Badger cock or bodyfeather from Jungle Cock

A fly from the “hackle and spider” series by John Sand: Ulrik.

The body of this fly could be done either with copper thread or flat copper. The green wool could also be substituted with seals-fur for a little bit of extra shine and volume to the body.

The pattern lists both badger and JC body feather for hackle, here I chose the latter to make good use of the JC cape. It is also softer than the badger I have available, so for me this was the better chose for a spider
