Wiggle Fox step by step

Material:

  • Hooks: Gamakatsu F 314 # 6
  • Tail: Fox Tail Hair
  • Body: SLF Saltwater Dubbing, SLF Prism Dubbing and a Hackle
  • Ribbing: Mono
  • Weight: Tungsten Bead or Lead Wire
  • Optional: 3 D Eyes secured with UV-Resin

 

Put a hook in the vise and tie in some fox tail hair. Put a strand of krinkle mirror flash on each side and tie it in.

 

Mix the dubbing. I used SLF Saltwater Dub in pearl and ginger and a little bit of SLF Prism dub.

 

Tie in the mono for ribbing, split the thread, put the dubbing in the gap and spin the bobbin to twist the dubbing and the thread.

 

Wind around the dubbing, tie in a hackle next to the hook eye and wind it backwards, then wind the ribbing to the front to secure the hackle. Catch the ribbing and do a whip finish. Use a velcro brush to comb the fly.

 

Cut the hook bend.

 

Put another hook in the vise and wind some lead wire on the front of the hook.

 

Tie in a piece of mono for the connection between the two pieces.

 

Connect the two pieces like above. Use super glue to fix everything.

 

Tie in another piece of mono for ribbing, then split the thread and put the dubbing in the gap. Spin the bobbin to twist the dubbing and wind it around to the front.

 

Wind around a hackle and rib it with mono like you’ve done with the first section.

 

You can finish the fly or dub a little head, put some 3 D eyes on each side and secure them with uv-resin.
