Stone's Olive Floating Nymph
OK, so the name needs work, but here is the basics

Hook: TMC 2487 G (gold emerger) Size 14
Thread: Olive 8/0 Unithread
Body: Olive marabu (cut from barb and used as dubbing)
Wings: White Dog Hair Ball (or white Buck-Tail would work)

Tie on behind the eye as normal.

Cut the soft barbs from a marabu feather and apply as dubbing to the line.

Wrap down body and back up to behind the eye.

Dub on the white hair and roll into a tight ball to sit on the top of the fly.

Secure ball at top and whip finish.

Voiala, you have it, and it caught a fish on the first cast, so it can't be all that bad!

I will post a pick as soon as I can figure out how to make the autofocus on my new camera work for the real close pictures!!!!
