    Hogan Brown's slowwater (or for when the fish get selective for foam things?) Stimi; kind of an oxymoron but cool looking. Change colors/sizes to suit your needs.


    hook - Dai Riki 280 #8 (original was tied with a Tiemco 200, a hook for which I have little love)
    thread - UTC 70 tan
    tail - yearling elk bleached
    body - dubbing tan
    rib/underwing - Krystal Flash rootbeer
    wing - 2mm foam tan
    legs - medium rubber brown
    thorax - Ice Dub golden brown
    hackle - tan grizzly

    mash barb, attach thread at 2/3 mark and wrap back to point above barb

    clean, stack, measure (gap width) a clump of elk

    tie in, trim, smooth butts with thread; in a traditional Stimi, you extend the butts to 2/3 mark and let it act as a PFD; here you want the fly's tail dragging (you could also sub synth yarn for the elk)
