Simram
Hook: Mustad 34007 or equivalent, #1-#4, upright in vice
Thread: Pink Fly Master Plus
Eyes: Medium (5/32) chrome lead eyes
Tail: 4 strands yellow Krystal Flash followed by golden tan Kraft Fur.
Body: Pearl glitter body (body braid).
Shell Back: 1 inch piece medium pearl Mylar piping, core removed.
Wing: 1 inch piece of tan, crosscut rabbit fur strip.

A local RI guide Johnny Glen helped devlop this fly is my understanding. I had a few of the Orvis versions which he said were way overdressed. I had some success with deep water fish this spring on them. The key is to trim the sides of the palmered rabbit for the wing. You can find a picture of one on the angleradventures.com web site.
