Rivers are going up and there's lots of snow to melt but eventually they're gonna come down; then it'll be time for foam stuff.

hook - TMC 5212 #10
thread - Danville black
body - peacock herl
overbody/head - 2mm foam brown
underwing - Krystal Flash pearl
wing - deer hair
legs - medium rubber brown
hackle - grizzly

mash barb, attach thread at 70% mark and wrap back to point above barb




tie in peacock herl; twist with thread, wrap body, tie off, trim, move thread back to 70% mark










taper a foam strip (not quite gap width); measure for length (gap width past bend) and tie in








tie in some KF, fold over/double back




clean stack, measure (tips even with foam) a clump of deer hair; cut to length and tie in






tie in legs, 2 per side




tie in hackle, wrap, tie off and trim






move thread forward to eye, tie down foam; half hitch x 2, SHHAN






trim head, trim KF, trim hackle flat on bottom, separate legs








Regards,
Scott
