    Found this on the Flytying Forum; seems to share chromosomes with the Stayner Ducktail. Supposedly a bass fly; like the Ducktail, should work as a stillwater trout fly, too.

    hook - Daiichi 2461 #6
    thread - Danville 6/0 brown
    rib - small wire copper
    body - mylar tinsel copper
    underwing - fox squirrel tail
    hackle - pheasant breast
    wing - mallard flank dyed olive (1tbsp Rit Golden Yellow, 1tsp Rit Dark Green, 1 cup water)


    mash barb, start thread, tie in rib, wrap to bend

    return thread to tie-in point; tie in tinsel, wrap to bend and back, tie off/trim

    Why, I have to tie that just because of the name (plus, it "looks" fishy!).!
