This is a pattern from my column in FlyFishing magazine published in the mid-90s. It was originated by Rick Fielder and he used it during the damselfly hatches on Crane Prairie in Oregon. His attempt was to meld a Woolly Bugger with a Carey Special -- two very effective stillwater patterns. You can tie it in a variety of colors but olive has always worked best for me. John Stewart and I tried it at Crane and honestly, never had that much luck with the guy. However, the pattern worked quite well in other stillwaters in Central Oregon. Materials: Hook: TMC 5212 or TMC 2312 (Rick liked the dry fly 5212 hook because he felt it gave the pattern more action, I prefer the 2312), sizes 6-12 Thread: Olive or black, your choice of size Tail: Olive marabou blood quill, extends the same distance as the hook length, two strands of pearlescent Krystal Flash, same length as marabou Rib: 3 strands of fine pearlescent mylar tinsel twisted into a single rope and counter wrapped through the body (I'm not a fan of using mylar tinsel so I use fine silver wire instead) Body: 2-3 peacock herl Hackle: Dyed olive Chinese ringneck pheasant rump feathers, with two short strands of the pearl Krystal Flash tied in on each check and cut short. Optional collar feather colors are dyed black or natural Krystal Flash was fairly new to the market when this pattern was originated so a lot of tyers were using it with their patterns. Personally, I don't know if it adds anything to the pattern or not as far as fooling fish. I normally tie a few strands in at the tail and forget the cheek bit.
