Hackle Stacker Hendrickson
The hackle stacker technique was developed by Bob Quigley back 1988 when he was having a hard time with picky fish in the slow clear water of a California stream. He set out tie a fly that might resemble a cripple, float low in the water, and be easy to see. This method can be used for any number of patterns but here's how to tie the Hendrickson version..
- Hook: Dry fly, size 12
- Thread: Tan or olive, 6/0 or 140 denier
- Tail: Medium dun hackle fibers
- Hackle: Hendrickson pink fine and dry dubbing
- Thorax: Same as body
- Head: Tying thread
