    A friend asked me to tie a few up; found some decent pics but not much other information on the fly. In particular I'm a bit fuzzy (no pun intended) on the body and hackle colors. Does anyone have a recipe?

    Regards,
    Scott

    I found some pics and just tied one up. If you like it here's the recipe for what I tied.

    Dubbing: Cinnamon and Orange Leech Blend Body Basics Dubbing
    #8 2x long dry fly hook
    Tan and Orange 2 mm foam( Trim if needed)
    Elk Hair, natural
    Orange Poly Yarn instead of what looked like Bucktail.
    Speckled Sexi Legs Copper Brown.
    Brown Neck hackle, 2 sizes smaller. hackle trimmed on the bottom to lay flat on the water.

    I found pictures of Larimer's yellow sally online, but only a couple. Looked to be the same fly in different size/color
