This is my entry for the simple but deadly fly swap.

Hook: Streamer 6-12, Mustad #80400Bln size 12
Thread: White maribou
Body: silver floss, 2 stranded from a craft store.
wing: White maribou.

Tie in the tail then wind the thread forward. tie in the floss and wind back with the 2 strands going down flat. At the back of the hook twist the floss into a single thread and wind forward as a rib then tie it off. Tie in the wing and finish off.

Now I see why you saw similarities between this fly and the Simpleton I posted a short while ago. Very nice!
