I think it is leather actually
or you can use foam

I saw a recipe for it on an East Coast fly tying site
used for strippers

was thinking about tying one up never got around to it

maybe now I will if I can find recipe for it
I seem to recall it mostly glued more than tied
thats how you get the hackle on the ends
glued between two sheets of leather one dark one white

The Furimsky boys run The Fly Fishing Shows around the country, as in our former Bellevue show. Nice guys and they love to fish.

I tie a similar pattern (for striped bass) but without the foam, I use some Softex painted on both sides of the feather. And less weight.

For Sea Run Cutthroat Trout I think you will need to tie this on a much smaller hook, like size six or eight and a shorter shank too.

Some of the pocket estuaries and tidal lagioons that I fish near hold tremendous numbers of juveniles just like this pattern.

W/ the wind knocking the power out & the sewer treatment plant dumping 1,000 of gallons of raw into PS by West Seattle the other day....

That little turd might just match the hatch.
