    Rivers are going up and there's lots of snow to melt but eventually they're gonna come down; then it'll be time for foam stuff.

    hook - TMC 5212 #10
    thread - Danville black
    body - peacock herl
    overbody/head - 2mm foam brown
    underwing - Krystal Flash pearl
    wing - deer hair
    legs - medium rubber brown
    hackle - grizzly

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

    tie in peacock herl; twist with thread, wrap body, tie off, trim, move thread back to 70% mark
