24Humpy
Hook:             TMC 100 size 24 Thread:          14/0 color of your choice, olive was mine Tail & Hump: Deer Hair Body:             Thread Wings:           Deer Hair Hackle:          Brown The Humpy is much easier to tie than most people think if you do the way Andre Puyans taught.... Material selection is critical to success and I don't think it's possible to tie on Jack Dennis style (sorry Jack).  Anyway, my video discusses all the details to make this fly a simple tie.  The video can be found at the following link. http://www.wyomingflyfishing.com/Fly-Tying-DVDs-C252.aspxFly Pattern Tied and Photo by Scott Stisser(c) 2011 by Scott Stisser ...
