Here is the recipe for the "McGinty" from an old book of patterns.
Black Thread
Tail: Crimson hackle and Barred teal fibres mixed
Body: Alternating bands of black and yellow chenille, two bands of each color with black starting at the back
Hackle: Brown, tied as a throat
Wings: White tipped mallard secondary tied "tent" style. (P.S. I often substitute with white tipped e.g. well bleached, deer body hair wing)

You can also try spun deer hair body with alternating black and yellow

New2, do a web search for "McGinty Fly" I found several sites with good instructions and pictures. This is an easy pattern to tie and a good "learning" pattern as well. Materials are easy to get and even the "ugly" ones will catch fish!
