Found this over on a UK site; frogwater stuff.

hook - TMC 5212 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
tail - pheasant tail
rear hackle - barred cream (undersize by 2)
rib - Uni Stretch brown
abdomen - dubbing tan
front hackle - brown (oversize by 1)

mash barb, start thread at 2/3 mark, wrap to point above barb



measure (hook length) some PT fibers; tie in (take one wrap under/behind and give it a good tug forward- helps set a bit of positive dihedral)/trim





tie in rear hackle; wrap to hook point, tie off/trim





tie in Uni-Stretch



dub thread/dub tapered abdomen to 2/3 mark





twist to tighten Uni; counterwrap rib, tie off/trim





tie in hackle (if you can find one with a darker center, cool; makes for a defined thorax); wrap tie off/trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN





trim out underside of hackle









Regards,
Scott
