Fly of the Week: Foxy Lady

This weeks fly has a little bit of an unorthodox way of being tied, so instead of just a recipe, I'll also be doing a step by step.

Foxy Lady:
Hook: #10 Nymph
Body: "Crawfish Orange" lite bright
Ribbing: copper wire
Shell/Tail: Green Fishair/holographic lite bright
Hackle: Guinea Hen
Tungsten Bead

Step One: Bead, meet hook.

Step Two: Add in the copper wire

Step Three: Add your dubbing

Step Four: Tie in the mixed green fishair/holo lite brite behind the bead.

Step Five: Take the cooper wire and wrap it around the body as well as the shell. Trim; keeping about one hookgap in the back to serve as the tail. 

Step Six: Tie in the Guinea Hackle. Fin!


  1. Hey Anthony, that's pretty cool. I was wondering (without cheating and scrolling down) what the final fly would look like. Should be a fish catcher.

  2. Thanks Cofisher. I'm looking forward to giving it a try in a month(the start of the season here.)
