Thanks TS .  That hook can be difficult as I don’t tie on them often.

At The End Of The Line is on order but, in the mean time, I based this (loosely) off a description I found here. Not sure how I skipped a beat on the rib.

hook - WFC Model 6 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 light olive 
tail - pheasant tail
rib - small wire chartreuse 
abdomen - medium tinsel opal 
thorax - dubbing golden olive hackle - dyed golden olive (4 Tsp Rit Golden Yellow/1 Tsp Rit Camel/4 cups water)
collar - badger

Regards,
Scott

Switched to a different hook, body, collar and rib - the medium wire is a bit stiff to manipulate  on smaller flies; the twisted stuff is about the same thickness but a lot more flexible

hook - Maruto 7989 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
tag - medium tinsel copper
rib - brassie wire copper (doubled/twisted)
abdomen - dubbing rusty orange/Ice Dub rust
thorax - aftershaft dyed orange (1 Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange/1 cup water) 
shoulder - pheasant rump dyed brown
collar - aftershaft dyed brown

Regards,
Scott

Nice fly, Flytier.  How long do the legs hold up?  I like any fly with peacock, except a Zug bug.

If there isn't a REAL, STUFFED deepsea diver in that suit, then they don't have EVERY critter from this world mounted.  😆

We use them as toppings, and they last for at least a couple fish.
