Saw this on Hans Weilenmann's Danica site, tied by Alberto Jimeno; always thought it was a cool looking fly. Haven't fished one, but it looks like it might work.

 

 

hook - Mustad 9671 #8

thread - UTC 140 black

abdomen - Ultra wire medium red

thorax - floss green

wing - mallard dyed wooduck

hackle - grizzly

 

 

mash barb and start thread at 60% mark

tie in wire on top of hook and wrap back to point right above the barb

wrap wire forward

tie down, helicopter the wire 'till it breaks and wrap smooth

tie in floss

wrap forward, back and forward, trying to keep it smooth; tie off floss

pull fibers off mallard feather, trying to keep tips even

measure wing for for length (let it extend hook gap distance past the butt)

and tie in

prep a hen saddle feather for tip tie in

tie in with dull side facing up (trim the stub out after you've hackled)

wet fingers and brush hackle fibers back as you wrap

tie off, finish head wrap, brush with Sally and it's done

same fly tied with mallard feather wing, like a Stayner Ducktail or Zoo Cougar; also stripped half the fibers off the grizzly hackle for the "lean and hungry look"
