Tying the Hornberg Dry

Who knew?  A Hornberg dry? I sure didn't until Tim Flager tied it and produced this fine video.  Like the well-known wet, its a fairly straightforward pattern made from common materials.  It looks great, and as Tim shows here, it catches fish.


Hook: Dai Riki #310 size 18
Thread: 6/0 Olive Danville
Body:Flat silver tinsel
Underwing: Yellow saddle hackle fibers
Overwing: Mallard flank fibers
Hackle: Mixed grizzly and brown

Tie some up, and sharpen your hooks!

Great little variation. I fish the Hornberg often. I'll try this for sure.

Nice Matt ... I fish Hberg both wet and dry in Adirondacks quite a bit...murder on wild Brookies!

Neat looking little pattern, along the lines of a midge cluster. Great blog too. Thanks for posting the tying videos.
