Flytying.ro has a nice tutorial here for tying a ‘dry’ fly. Depicted are the popular euro red tag tail. A good example of peacock and ribbing and tying in a dry fly hackle. Check out the site periodically for good instruction on tying effective patterns. The photographs add so much clarity in understanding the techniques. Notice the ribbing is counter wrapped over the peacock.
