Fly Tying: Biot Bodies (Smooth~Ridged)

BIOT BODIES HOW TO’s

This is my effort at a Pale Morning Dun, size 16. The tail is a few barbs from a grizzly hackle feather. The body (abdomen) is a yellow goose biot. There is a notch in every individual biot near the butt section. That notch is your guide to whether your body will be smooth (as I did here) or ridged. (Notch up = ridged body) (Notch down = smooth body).  The wing is a clump of CDC that I tied in and raised up into a vertical position with thread wraps around the base. I tied in one medium blue dun feather and wrapped it behind the CDC post and then wrapped the hackle forward, to the front.

    Did you soak your biots before tying them?

      Thank you. I struggle with smaller flies. Perhaps I should switch to big ol’ Intruders etc. Thanks for dropping by Charlie…appreciate it.
