    Stephen Procter - Sunk (wet) Spinners

    Sunk (Wet) Spinners

    Daiichi 1190 , here on#16
    Thread: 8/0 / 70 den. , or even finer if needed
    Tails: Fibetts / paint(acrylic) brush fibers...
       or even fine soft hackle fibres if you wish
    Abdomen: Grey turkey biot, swiped with
       a permanent marker
    Wings: Window insulation shrink film,pre-shrunk with a hair dryer
       and cut into thin strip,... OVER a few (4 or 5 ) fibres of Antron
       ...Cut the film to size and shape after tie-off, and the Antron
       fibres to the same wing length.
       Clear Swiss Straw also works.
    Thorax: Lustre Plus, cut and dubbed on sparsely.

       Don't leave the wings as a regular dry spinner, ie:at 90 degrees
       to the hook shank.  Especially if you do use this shrink film material
       as it is actually lighter than water, and you are trying to sink the fly,
       eventually. No, there's no good reason NOT to tie it and fish it
       intentionally as a dry.The shrink film is very fine and forgiving
       even after pre-shrinking, and folds back on the cast, resuming set
       position afterwards.  Tied as a spent dry this shrink film can support
       a dry hook that is tailed appropriately, but only until the fly breaks
       the surface film.
