"THE SIRLOIN"

THIS IS THE RECIPE FOR A 3 WING XTRA LONG SHANK HOOK PATTERN GENERALLY TIED IN SIZES #4-#2 AND LARGER.

HOOK SIZES #6 AND SMALLER GENERALLY HAVE ONLY 2 WING SECTIONS, THIS ALSO DEPENDS UPON LENGTH OF HOOK SHANK.


#1 OFFER HOOK TO VISE IN A VERY SECURE MANOR.


#2 OFFER THREAD TO HOOK STARTING APPROX1/4 INCH FROM BEND.


#3 TRIM A PATCH OF COYOTE BELLY FUR IN A SIZE PORPORTIONAL TO SIZE OF FLY.


#4 FIRMLY ATTACH COYOTE BELLY FUR TO HOOK FORMING TAIL SECTION.


#5 MAKE SURE TO USE MULTIPLE WRAPS TO SECURE TAIL SECTION.


#6 ATTACH CHENILLE ON TOP OF TAIL SECTION.


#7 WRAP CHENILLE FORWARD TO MID SHANK.


#8 TIE OFF CHENILLE WITH FIRM WRAPS OF THE THREAD.


#9 ATTACH 2ND WING SECTION.


#10 ATTACH CHENILLE ON TOP OF 2ND WING SECTION WITH
       MULTIPLE FIRM WRAPS OF THREAD.


#11 WRAP CHENILLE FORWARD TO 3/4 LENGHT OF SHANK.


#12 TIE OFF CHENILLE WITH FIRM WRAPS OF THE THREAD.


#13 ATTACH 3RD WING SECTION.

#14 TRIM A SECTION OF DEER HAIR.


#15 ATTACH DEER HAIR TO SHANK WITH 2 LOOSE LOOPS, THEN TIGHTEN DOWN TO SPIN HAIR.


#16 ADD MORE DEER HAIR TO SHANK, REPEAT STEP #15  TO FORM HEAD,
TIE OFF WITH A WHIP FINISH KNOT OR 3 - 5 OVER HAND KNOTS.


#17 YOUR "SIRLOIN" SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS, READY FOR TRIMMING AND SHAPING A HEAD.


#18 THIS AN OPTIONAL STEP, I LIKE TO SET FLY INTO A PIECE OF FOAM TO ROTATE IN ANY DIRECTION FOR EASY TRIMMING.


#19 TRIM SPUN DEER HAIR HEAD TO SHAPE AND LAQUER THE TIE OFF.


#20 THE FINISHED PRODUCT....ONE OF THE BEST STREAMER PATTERNS TO HIT THE WATER....."THE SIRLOIN".
