A video showing how to complete this fly using the ‘Pot Weave’

I was asked by one of the forum members from the UK Fly Forum to put this video together so that they could perfect the Pot Weave.

I have tied this pattern that I use for grayling in the main but it also works for trout to show the technique.

Materials required are as follows:

Hook: Grub hook to suit.In this case I have used a Partridge Grub hook size 8

Silk: 70 denier white uni nylon

Under body: Square lead wire.

Body: Embroidery silk yarn in olive

Legs: Grey dyed Ostrich herl

Rib: Monofilament line

Shell Back: Nymph skin coloured with a Pantone pen

‘Fishin’ Glue or super glue.
