Secret weapon step by step.

This pattern is used a lot, on the rivers of Wales for Sewin (sea run brownies).
First put the stinger treble in the vise, here i am using a size 12 to match up with a size 4 Kamasan B175. and it can be tied is smaller and bigger sizes, it is used when on nights fish a taking short and plucking at the tail of the fly. 
 Now i catch in the tying thread, here i am using Danville hot orange 70 denier. the nylon i am using is Amnesia memory free monofilament, and great for holding its shape.
 Now i twist the mono, by hand over hand. this is the only way to do it, for it to stay that way.
 Above is the finished hook link,
Next i coat the tying thread with Deercreek UV resin, to seal the thread.
 Next i place the size 4 B175 in the vise,
 Now i put down a layer of white Danville thread, this one being 210 denier.
 Now i tie in the hook link, in touching turns. 
 Now trim the hook link, 3/4 up the hook shank.
 Now using a lighter, burr over the mono ends.
 Here we finish the tying of the thread, and tie off.
 Now i coat the thread on the shank,with thinned 60 second nail varnish. this when dry will never pull off,
 Here we start to dress the fly, holographic silver body and hackle. which is going to be a Squirrel blue and silver secret weapon.
 I have now wound on the hackle, and tied off the thread. i am using Danville white 70 denier,
 Now we tie in the wing, using Squirrel tail, to the length of the stinger hook.
 Now we tie in some micro silver tinsel.
 Now i change the thread, this time for making a nice red head.

And above is the finished fly,with a nice glossy head. with a coat of thinned nail varnish, and one coat of Deercreek Uv resin to finish head. this is a pattern i use a lot in this make up, and also tied single and double hooks. as well as snake / waddingtons and tubes. just a great catcher of fish,
