Red Ass Willie

 

Red Ass Willie

hook no preference
hook size(s) 1 XL 10-16
thread black
tail short pieces of red floss
rib single strand of peaacock herl
body red floss, tapered towards hook eye
thorax dark olive or green hackle clipped fairly short

notes: Could be considered a Chronomid….try a variety of retrieves. This fly works. Ken McGee of Boise Idaho should take credit for this fly. You can fortify the fly and add a little weight by adding reverse wrap copper wire to the body over the peacock herl.
