    I've seen it tied with a Krystal Flash tail but like it better without; your choice. Lots of color permutations; again, your choice.


    hook - TMC 5212 #8
    thread - UTC 140 hopper yellow
    overbody/head - 2mm foam tan
    body - 2mm foam yellow
    body hackle - brown (undersize by 2)
    rib - tying thread
    legs - medium rubber white/black
    wing - deer hair
    front hackle - grizzly

    mash barb, attach thread at 70% mark and wrap back to point above barb

    taper foam strip (gap width), tie in (brush a little Super Glue, smooth with thread wraps); tie in body strip (1/2 gap width)
