Getting the tailwater boxes in order. I guess you could use something subtle for the hackle but with that thorax, what's the point? Weight optional.


hook - Mustad 3399A #14
thread - UTC 70 fire orange
tail - hen badger
rib - small wire copper
abdomen - pheasant tail
thorax - Sow/Scud dubbing Bighorn orange
hackle - partridge dyed orange (1Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange/1 cup water)
One of these

body - dubbing brown
wing - elk hair dyed dark dun

Saw one version with a teal flank wing which looked a bit weird; the grizzly hackle up front creates a similar effect.

tag - Danville Depth Ray fire orange
rib - small wire silver
