Video instructions: SCE Shad


  1. Wrap hook with thread
  2. Place light bucktail halfway down shaft of hook, and tie in
  3. Place a sparse bunch of dark bucktail in front of light, and tie off.
  4. Pull threads from Mylar and flatten, cut the back at a slight angle to allow the mylar to clear the hook gap.
  5. Tie down in the front, and tie off.
  6. Place eyes and seal the entire front 1/3 of the fly.  In this example I am using booger glue.
