Hook: Daichii 2220 - size 6 (shown) 2 & 4 & 8 to imitate natural size
Tail: Brown Goose Biot
Body: Brown dubbing (I use the most scraggly stuff I can get, not the nice soft stuff)
Rib: Dark copper wire
Legs: Red/Brown saddle hackle (dark centre with light tips)
Wing Case: Olive/green(shown)/brown/black Synthetic rafia or equivalent
Thorax: Copper tinsel chenille
Bead head for weight

Works wonders in early spring when the Stoneflies are starting to migarte towards their favorite rocks to hatch out!
