Here's a version that I tie — also matching the way Marc now ties the fly (the last time I got samples from him) and I think close what David was describing. Although here, I've used Arctic fox as the yellow underwing, I occasionally use Arctic fox for the top (black) wing but particularly like kid goat hair (shown here), a few strands of black crystal flash, dark brown or black V-rib, blue-eared pheasant, silver pheasant collar, and jc eyes. And I've taken steelhead in Oregon, Atlantic salmon from the Gaspé (including your river), New Brunswick and Russia with the picasse. It's one of my staples.
