The Scarecrow (mini-dragon fly pattern)

 

                                            SCARECROW  by Gary Muncy (2004)

This fly was created about 3-4 years ago to provide a smaller partner to the Kaufmann Dragon. It was tied smaller, but buggier and spikier (ok, not real adjectives, but bare with me). A mixtrue of brown and olive Hare’s Ear dubbing. The tail was a short bunch of marabou (Chickabou could be used). The hook was a stout #10 (3xl). Red, black and green eyes have been used to good affect. Green, copper and gold ribbing were used. The abdomen is touch dubbed for spikes from the guard hairs. A grouse or partridge feather is wound once for minimal legs, then the thorax/head area is dubbed again around the eyes (tied on top of the shank) to the eye of the hook. The Scarecrow affect is wanted here: guard hairs/straw sticking out from tail to the eye of the hook. There was no weight added to the fly. Intermediate or Type 2 lines taking the unweighted fly downward were used.These were tied up and fished for one season and then some how put in a small fly box, then in a drawer beneath a workbench in the garage. An archeological dig recently uncovered them. I am so darn excited to include these into my Dragon and Damsel arsenal.  The Scarecrow…..tie ’em and use. 

 

 

 

 

Oh, good lead in: Liberty v. group think, political correctness, ‘community’, nanny state. By all means, give it all up for ‘change’ and ‘hope’ Hapless robots. OK, I am done.
