The first is just a basic Pheasant Tail, however this one is tied "in the round". This is a super simple and fast tie, and works well on any stream. The second is a CDC Parachute Sulphur Spinner, this little guy is one that I kinda came up with last year as an experiment and it worked wonders.
Pheasant Tail - Round
Hook: TMC 2488 sz. 14-18
Thread: UNI Thread 6/0 - Black
Bead: Tungsten Bomb Bead sz. to make hook - Gold
Tail: Pheasant Tail Fibers
Body: Pheasant Tail Fibers
Rib: Ultra Wire Gold
Thorax: Ice Dub - Peacock
Step 1: Place Bead onto Hook.
Step 2: Make a thread base, tying in the Ultra wire.
Step 3: Pull 4 or 5 Peasant tail fibers off the tail feather. Make one wrap of thread over the pheasant tail fibers and adjust to length. Wrap thread forward.
Step 4: Wrap Pheasant tail fibers forward, leaving a small gape behind the bead.
Step 5: Wrap the Ultra wire forward, making a rib.
Step 6: Dub behind the bead, making a nice buggy thorax.
Step 7: Whip finish, and cut off.
CDC Parachute Sulphur Spinner
Hook: TMC 100 sz. 14 - 20
Thread: UNI Thread 8/0 Yellow
Tails: Mayfly Tails
Hot Butt: Sow Scud Dubbing - Big Horn Orange
Para Wing: Super Select CDC - White or Lt. Dun
Body: East Coast Dubbing - Sulphur Spinner (Tied with DRC)
2nd Wing: Whiting Grizzly Hackle
Step 1: Make a small orange egg sack with dubbing. This will help split the tails as well.
Step 2: Tie in 4 Mayfly Tails. Wrapping thread sung to the dubbing ball.
Step 3: Strip one CDC feather and stack it. Tie in forward, trim extra forming a small tapered body.
Step 4: Wrap the thread up the CDC, making a parachute post.
Step 5: Tie in Grizzly hackle for the legs/spent wing.
Step 6: Taking the thread back to the tails, dub the body forward. Keep as slim as possible.
Step 7: Wrap the hackle 2 times around the post. Tie off behind the hook eye.
Step 8: Whip finish, the cut the CDC post to the size you would like. Sometimes having just a slightly higher post can help see in low light.
