    Hook-#12 glo bug
    callibaetis uv ice dub
    stack the moose mane and clip of just the skinny part

    tie them to the hook in this order
    foam-dubbing-foam-hackle-moose mane-whip finish--brown marker for the stripe--super glue to kink the legs.
    Have fun with it, use different colors and shapes. they look so buggy I dont think that matters that much, but they sure look cool.

    As for the other patterns I will be using on the yakima , I want to think outside of the norm and try to stumble upon something great. So if I fish the lower canyon much I think I will try some mice this summer. Also, I have a snake pattern snake pattern might find its way to the end of my line. This of course will probably only happen when the usual dry flies arent producing
