Materials

 

Tying the Undertaker Step 1

STEP 1 : Catch in a length of black antron along the hookshank to form a tail and secure the bulk with thread.

Tying the Undertaker Step 2

STEP 2 : Catch in two lengths of Krystal flash, one at either side of the tail.

Tying the Undertaker Step 3

STEP 3 : Catch in a length of medium oval silver tinsel.

Tying the Undertaker Step 4

STEP 4 : Catch in two lengths of Black Anton and tie down the bulk. (These are going to be the back and Thorax cover)

Tying the Undertaker Step 5

STEP 5 : Now catch in another length of black antron (roughly 12-14 inches in length) and create a cigar shaped body with thread. Return the thread to the hook eye when done.

Tying the Undertaker Step 6

STEP 6 : Wind the Antron up and down the hookshank to create the desired body effect. Tie off at the eye and trim waste Antron.

Tying the Undertaker Step 7

STEP 7 : Wind the oval tinsel up the body to create a rib, tie off at the eye and trim waste.

Tying the Undertaker Step 8

STEP 8 : Pull the remaining two strands of Antron forward over the back and thorax, tie off at the eye, trim waste and build a neat head. Varnish the head and then finally trim the tail to the desired length.

Tying the Undertaker Final Step

Final : On the original pattern a white eye at either side of the fly was painted on. I find it just as effective without.
