Made a few modifications to Charlie Craven’s version, mainly in the underwing. Great thing about this fly is, with all the foam for buoyancy, you don’t need to use your best hackle (the grizzly was a webby saddle which, while not adding much to floatation, looks pretty buggy).

hook - Dai Riki 730 #8
thread - Uni 6/0 tan 
tag - Orvis saltwater thread fluoro orange/resin 
tail - deer hair 
rib - xsmall wire gold
abdomen - Starburst dubbing tan 
body hackle - ginger (undersize by 2) 
overbody/head - 2mm foam tan
underwing - Congo Hair shiner tan
wing - deer hair
indicator - Parapost yarn hot orange 
thorax - Ice Dub hot orange 
legs - medium rubber cornsnake 
hackle - grizzly

Regards,
Scott

Loving this style of patterns- my personal terrestrial box is way out of date- and needing some of these. Ps- what camera and lens are you using- photos look great

Thank you.  My setup is very basic - a 15yr old Canon Powershot SD750 point-and-shoot that appears to have a decent macro, an Ott light + 2 clamp-on lights (LED), and a piece of grey craft foam as a background.

Your setup might be "very basic" but it's also quite sophisticated - and very well thought out...  Well done!

Yup! It's neat stuff.  I'll send you some...

Oh so right, it is neat stuff. FYI - A jackdaw is an English crow and has an amazing dark blue/gray color.

Chugbug27, very nice tie, I’m wondering did you use the orange silk as tying thread and tie in the body threads at the back of the hook? I’ve got to try a few these!

Thanks, Mike,
