I was walking to my car the other afternoon and saw a pair of headphones laying on the payment. Now we all know I use the headphones wire as well as the insulation for different patterns. I have also used headphone insulation for 'stonefly nymphs' before. The pattern had several materials and was loosely based on Randal Kaufman's creation.
On this pattern I wanted to see how few materials I could use as well as have a strong 'Trash Fly' influence. Below is what I came up with.
Hook: #6 Streamer
Tail, Legs, Antenna, and Rib: Headphones found in parking lot on way to car last week.
Under-body and Thorax: Poly Pro yarn black
Dedicated to my son. I love you.
