GOOD LUCK GOOD TYIN:smokin:[/QUOTE]saltydog- I use a type of flatwing bunke fly to imitate the peanuts. I tie a tail of bucktail with some flash and two sadles tied in flat. Next the body- any flash will do and a collar of white bucktail. Sometimes I use marabou next using two wraps before topping with alittle bucktail and another(silver doctor blue or olive) saddle tied in flat. If I don't use the marabou collar I top the white collar with some amber bucktail and top that with an olive saddle tied in flat, and add some Arctic fox for a second throat to give a deeper proflie.

Sorry, unable to send a picture. Ron
