Mayfly Polychenille Body

Hook: Knapek Midge Pupae #16 Barbless
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Brown
Body: Polychenille brown, Hareline Hare’s Ear Plus Chocolate Brown
Wing: White Yarn
Hackle: Whiting

This is more of a one-time experiment to see how  the polychenille will act as a extended body on a mayfly. Have not tested out that before so it will be interesting to observe how it will behave in the river. The body together with the hackle and V-wing should be a ok profile on the water.

Thread: Sheer 14/0 black
Tail: Pink yarn
Body: Peacock with Whiting hackle wrapped around the body, trimmed on top and bottom

I draw a lot of inspiration from the list of other flytyers I have in my blogroll, this one showed up at baksleng the other day and should be interesting to test out for the next trip.
