    Another vintage pattern from Kamloops tyer/guide Bill Nation. This one is supposed to represent dragonflies swimming in some of the lakes; weird stuff up there, I'd declare them Superfund sites.

    hook - Mustad 9671 #8
    thread - Danville 6/0 black
    tail - brown mallard
    rib - oval tinsel silver
    body - back half silver tinsel, front half Uni Stretch Chinese red
    wing - brown mallard (original appeared to use a clump of stripped fibers: I prefer the look of a flank tip); goose biots red
    hackle - hen badger

    mash barb, start thread 1 eye width back from eye; tie in rib, wrap to bend

    measure (shank length) some mallard flank fibers; tie in/trim, finish thread at mid-shank
