    The one's I have seen have just been a larger version of the original. Maybe with a hot bead or hot wire rib. You could even go so far as to sub in an SLF body of natural or "steelhead" color and use different color biots. Others have a some webby soft hackle in addition to a little flash or color.

    Not much help, but hey...

    The best patterns that I have seen are tied on a Caddis curved hook where the abdomen is comprised of ice peacock dubbing and has a butt of pink or orange ice dubbing. If you can find pink or orange dyed biots that would make the pattern that much more attractive, at least to the fisherman.

    I have used a steelhead prince with the lite bright dubbing. They make a peacock color which is money. I throw on some rubber legs add some lead underneath and and add a red throat to the fly. They worked well for me last fall.
    I tied some on a Gami finesse wide point and I really liked how the fly looked and it had a nice gap for a small fly.
