Found this on the Solitudefly site; added an indicator since I have no idea where my flies land most of the time. Could also be tied as a parachute.

hook – Daiichi 1170 #14
thread - MFC 8/0 sand
tail - marabou dun (pheasant used here)
body - moose mane, 1 light/1 dark
shellback/periscope - 2mm foam grey
indicator - Parapost Yarn hot orange
thorax - ostrich herl dun
hackle - grizzly

Mash barb/start thread at 2/3 mark; wrap to bend




measure (gap width) a marabou tip; tie in/wrap to 2/3 mark






tie in moose mane




wrap fibers forward, side-by-side, to 2/3 mark; tie off/trim, brush with Sally




tie in indicator




tie in foam strip




tie in some ostrich herl fibers; twist, wrap to 3/4 mark, tie off/trim






pull foam forward; tie down




repeat with indicator




tie in hackle




wrap hackle; tie off/trim




pull foam/indicator back, set upright with thread wraps in front




half hitch x 2, SHHAN, trim foam/indicator even with hackle




trim out hackle underneath (optional)








Regards,
Scott

Nice looking fly.
My own bias would be that a gray body and tail might fish better.
But emerger patterns that sit right on the water are definitely good !

Beautiful tie and images !
