HOOK: #4-8 4XL streamer, Tiemco #9395.
THREAD: Black 50-denier UTC GSP.
WEIGHT: .010" wire.
BODY: Fiery brown or black Angora goat hair.
FLASH: Red Krystal Flash.
DC Leech Step 1
With the hook in the vise, bend the hook shank slightly upward approximately ¼ inch behind the hook eye. Apply eight or ten wraps of .010" wire on the bent portion, leaving a little space between the wire and hook eye to finish the head. Anchor the wire with a few thread wraps, finishing immediately behind the wire.
DC Leech Step 2
Twist a half-dollar-size wad of goat hair into a tight rope between the thumbs and forefingers of both hands. Maintaining a good grip with one hand, attach it to the hook shank with several tight thread wraps. Double a single strand of red Krystal Flash around the tying thread and attach it at the goat hair tie-in point.
DC Leech Step 3
Clip the Krystal Flash just short of the tail length. Fold the forward portion of goat hair toward the rear of the hook and secure it at the original tie-in point. Add a small drop of Super Glue at the wire/material junction to keep the body from rolling on the hook shank.
DC Leech Step 4
Dub a small amount of goat hair to the thread and cover the wire with a nicely tapered application of dubbing. Crisscross this area with several tight thread wraps to form a compact underbody.
DC Leech Step 5
Coat the thread with dubbing wax and apply some goat hair to form a dubbing noodle. Wrap the noodle to form the shaggy overbody. Whip-finish and cement the head. Next, tease out the front portion of the fly with a strip of Velcro. Meld the entire body together by combing to the rear with a dubbing brush.
