The Club Sandwich/Triple Decker Fly

Club Sandwich #12
Hook: #6-12 3xl hook
Body: 3 pieces of 2mm foam glued together and stamped out with a cutter
Thread: 6/0 or UTC 140 Denier
Legs: Tan Rubber Legs barred with marker
Hair: Elk or Deer
Use the thread to form segmentation on this fly. Slit the foam with a razor blade to recess on the hook shank and use super glue applied to thread before doing so to help hold onto the shank. Make sure the segments are even spaced. I start the thread about the 50% point on the hook and work back to the tail of the fly and then back up the shank of the hook making the segments as I go. Form the legs by using three strands at a time and place a knot in two rubber pieces. Tie them in at two separate points or segments. Separate the three strands on both the rear and front legs. Clip out two strands on the rear portion. Pick the best angled leg and remove the other two. On the front legs, I clip both top and bottom strands. Use a bodkin or needle to pierce through the middle portion of the body. Then insert a threader and double over a piece of rubber leg and pull through. Trim to length.
I prefer tying these flies with a hair wing or something on top to make them land hook down.
