Play around with colors and sizes; this could work for caddis, stoneflies, hoppers/crickets, etc, or just to pound up any stupid trout hanging around .


hook - Dai Riki 280 #14
thread - UTC 140 tan
abdomen - Ice Dub golden brown
overbody - 2mm foam gold
underwing - bleached elk
overwing/indicator - Congo Hair white
legs - medium rubber barred tan
hackle - grizzly dyed ginger (undersize by 1)


mash barb, start thread at 2/3 mark; dub thread, dub body back to bend








taper foam strip (gap width); measure for length (gap width past bend), tie in








add a bit more dubbing; take a wrap at foam tie-in then continue to 2/3 mark






tie down foam; wrap to eye






clean, stack, measure (tips to end of foam) a clump of elk; trim to length, tie in






tie in CH, fold, wrap to wing; tie in legs
