    Throwing hoppers into baetis falls
    Hook: Tiemco 1110
    Body: dubbed olive antron
    Gills: Peacock herl, 4 strands
    Legs: Moose body hair, clipped at base and stripped of hair

    Very basic, I just tie the peacock herl to the rear of the shank, dub the body, and tie off the peacock herl and legs. The head is obviously too big - my technique isn't very good yet. I've had good success fishing this through and below riffles, sometimes with the shank bent slightly to give a more curled body. I think the flotation of the moose hair and dry fly hook help the fly to tumble...I like to fish it with a loop knot to help aid that tumbling.
