Here's an interpretation of an forever popular pattern originated by Bill McMillan , designed to be dressed on a LARGE hook and fished with a floating line and long leader.

Hook=Partridge CS10/1 # 1/0- 6/0 (2/0 shown)
Body= Flat silver tinsel ribbed with oval silver
Wing= Orange over yellow rooster hackles topped with golden olive Lite-brite ( original=olive calf tail)
Collar= purple over blue hackle
