Lady Prawn, Orange 

Name Lady Prawn, Orange
Category Steelhead
Hook Gamakatsu, T10-6HR (red), 1/0
Tail (eyes) Golden pheasant crest cut to a V
Rib Medium oval, gold tinsel
Body Orange seal sub*
Hackle  Ringneck pheasant rump from the top of the second turn of the rib
Throat Gold/orange golden pheasant rump
Underwing Orange marabou feather** (not visible through wings except when wet)
Wing Bronze mallard flank tips

*Wrap the first turns of seal sub around the V in a figure of eight to hold the eyes in place.
**The purpose of the marabou is to help hold the wings (shellback) in place when being fished.

Lady Prawn, Orange was designed and tied by Contributing Fly Tyer John Wood. Take a look at his contributor page, The Flies of John Wood, to see many more of his flies.

John's Notes: This pattern is a combination of two standards in steelhead fishing, the Lady Caroline and the General practitioner. My goal was to create something effective and easy to tie.
