It's a Matuka, about the easiest baitfish pattern ever. Just put a pair of half-stripped hackles (stripped side down) over the body of the fly, lock in, and rib up the length.

Medallion Sheeting

Hey Kimo, I think I remember you saying that Stalcup's recipe for medallion sheeting was a rafia & flexcement sandwich? Is that right? Much thanks, awed by your posts as always

No, it's this plastic film that they use to bind packages. He was dumpster diving at Pier 1 when he found it. He was looking for his own version of Bett's Zing Wing.
They take this plastic film and twist it into rope.
He would unravel this "rope"and apply ChartPak Markers to it for color.
He then would thin down Shoe Goop and apply it to one side and then sandwich the two pieces together.
I've actually done it myself and it works pretty good.
Better than the stuff they call Medallion Sheeting from HL.

What also works is Swiss Straw and 3M Sprayment. It's just a bit thicker.
