Daddy Long Leg (crane fly)

hook longshank/streamer
hook size(s) 8-10
thread black or dark brown
body hare’s ear or similar
legs knotted rooster fibres x6
hackle brown cock
wing (alternatively) grey mallard

notes: This fly is an extreamly easy fly to ty, but it is important to get the legs spread backwards. Tie each leg on seperately, otherwise it is to easy to get all legs on a lump behind the body.
