    Materials
    Hook- Daiichi 1140-1150 16-24
    Thread- Uni 8/0 Light Cahill
    Tail- Peacock hurl
    Abdomen- Tying thread with peacock tied in on top.
    Rib- Tying thread
    Wing case- Peacock hurl
    Thorax- U.V. High Test

    Here is my H.T.P. Trout Bane. This is one of my best producers. Dead drift and also worked on a twitch and strip. It is a quick tie and top off lightly on top with Bug Bond light formula makes the peacock durable without taking away much from the peacock. All the colors and flash remain. I like to tie and fish these guys small, 16 being a huge one. I go down to 24 on these guys. This one looks great tied with a metallic thread such as montana fly co midge body thread. Although I haven't noticed a difference in effectiveness on the trout.

    I tied up a half dozen of these last week. Quick tie! Fished it all day today and it did VERY well. Thanks for the pattern--a new favorite of mine.

    I'm a fan of how this fly looks as well and a nice simple tie for someone like myself who has limited patience at the vice
