Red Fox Squirrel
1 Attachment(s)
Hook: 6-18 (here, a size 10)
Thread: 6/0, black
Tail: Hare's mask guard hairs
Rib: Fine gold oval tinsel
Abdomen: Red fox squirrel dubbing
Thorax: Red fox squirrel blended with brown Antron (here, brown synthetic)
Legs: Mottled brown hen hackle, tied full (here, brown partridge)

This is another favorite nymph of mine. I prefer to use partridge for the legs in lieu of the hen hackle because it breathes a bit more in the water. If I want a fuller set of legs, I opt for the hen hackle.
