Good Early Pattern

I dont have a picture ( no dig cam ) but the fly looks similar to the Pink Fuzz fly posted earlier.

Hook: 3906B Mustad size 10

Tail : Chartruse. Maribou ( sparce )

Body: 5 strands Ostritch Herl ( Chartruse ) and 3 strands Blue or Red Crystal Flash twisted and palmered up the shank.

Easy fast and cheap. Best thing is they work.

Get fancy and ad a tungsten bead or experiment with different flash or herl.
