Another fly I've been experimenting with. the pattern is much slimmer when wet.

Hook: 3-4X long Streamer
Thread: black
Body: silver embroidery floss (Dave I know the comment :hehe: )
Wing: white Maribou, topped with gray, then black, then with brown.
Collar: Red Maribou

Thanks Q, It has a really slim profile when wet and sinks real nice. I've always liked the deer hair black nosed daces but didnt think they sank well. The image is a scan I was too lazy to take a picture.
