hook - Dai Riki 320 #12
thread/body - Danville Flat-wax yellow
shuck - Congo Hair brown
back- 2mm foam tan
wing - Congo Hair white
hackle - brown
band - UTC 140 red
legs - rubber medium cornsnake

Saw this in the latest American Angler - trailing shuck like an emerger, body like an attractor and wing like a cripple; quite a combination.


mash barb and attach thread at 60% mark





tie in shuck and wrap back to point above barb





trim shuck to length (about 2/3 shank)





taper tip of foam strip (hook gap width)





brush on a little Super Glue and tie in






cover foam with thread wraps/create body





pull foam forward, tie down and trim







tie off thread and replace with 8/0 brown Uni; tie in wing clump







prep hackle feather, tie in; wrap hackle forward, tie off and trim









trim wing back and front







last thread change, promise; start band





tie in legs







whip finish, trim thread (don't leave a big bump/tag like I did) and SHHAN on the band; trim legs and it's done
