Start your thread and tie in the Pearl Flash. Choose two strands of flash, double them over your thread, and tie them in at the bend of the hook. Trim the excess so the fibers extend roughly 3x the length of the hook shank.
Choose two hackle feathers and tie them in on opposite sides of the hook shank so they splay outward. This will create the tail of the fly. Wrap forward on the stems and snip off any excess fibers.
Choose two more hackle feathers and tie them both in on the near side of the hook shank. Advance your thread over the butts to the middle of the hook shank then wrap the hackles around the hook shank taking touching turns to create the body of the fly. Tie off the feathers near the middle of the hook shank and snip off any excess material.
Repeat Step 3 to complete the body of the fly. Tie off the hackle feathers right behind the eye of the hook.
Throw a whip finish and add some head cement to increase the durability of the fly.
And that's it! This is a very simple pattern to tie and only uses a few materials. That being said, it's effective when you need to present a bulky fly softly to a laid up fish in saltwater or freshwater.
