Picture of Man Crafting: How to Tie a WD-40 Fly
The WD 40 fly is an all-use fly for fly fishing. It can be used on your fishing set up in many circumstances and conditions. To tie this fly you will need:
1) A fly tying kit that includes a vice, bobbin, and whip finisher
2) A pair of scissors
3) A size 16 straight shank hook
4) Gray 140 denier thread
5) A duck flank feather
6) Hares ear colored dubbing

Step 1: Wrap the hook

-Take your thread and using the bobbin, wrap a layer of twine around the hook starting from the eye of the hook, down the shaft, and moving toward the back. Stop when the hook begins to bend into the shank

i swear WD-40 is a lubricant spray
Unsure if that's sarcasm or not, but WD-40 is. It stands for "Water Displacement (formula) 40"

A little late to the party, I know, but it could be reffering to how effective the fly is. WD-40 is a fairly effective fish attractant. When I was younger, we used to catch fish on bare hooks sprayed with WD-40(yes, I realize now that it was probably not the best thing to be doing)
