Hook- 1/0 mustad; Thread- white; Body- Yellow Chenille; Wings-Four white neck
hackles, 2 1/2 inches long, each pair flared outward; Collar- Dark grizzly or
grizzly and black mixed ( I used dark brown grizzly); Head- Lightweight wooden

covered the final paint with hard as Hull). ...History- This fly was originated
