Fly Name: Schmankerl Dry
Tyrer: Markus Bettstetter
The silhouette of this very buoyant fly mimics many different insects and can be fished in almost all situations. I fish almost no other dry fly. Once it has been greased (eg with Nev-R-sink), it still floats through the lower wings and the deer hair, even after many fish.
It is not difficult to tie and you need only a few materials:
Size / Size: 14 Hook / Hook: Gamakatsu F11B # 14 or # 16 or TMC 113 BLH # 14 or # 16 Thread: Veevus 6/0 Black or Technical Tying Thread Body / Body: Spectra Dubbing black / Antron Dubbing, black Thorax: Deer hair nature Hackle: Deer hair nature Wing (lower wing): Flash Blend white or TIEMCO Areo Dry Wing (white)
Body: Tie in the dubbing
Under wing: Flash Blend or even better Tiemco Aero Dry Wing. Secure it with cross windings.
Wing/hackle/head: approx. 2 cm deer hair from approx. Start of by lightly tying in the deer hair with a couple of loose turns and then tighten up so the winh stands up. Trim the excess deer hair into a small head and fishish the fly with a know and varnish.
