Same here, looks similar to something I know I've seen before, but I can't place it. 

Did a quick search and only Egan's Corn Fed Caddis or an egg laying Caddis by Matt Grobert look close.  I think its Egan's fly that I remembered, but yours looks better.     

Thanks, I don't think its the corn fed though.  This one is mostly snowshoe rabbit.....

Sorry, newbie, and neglected to include the recipe.

That spiffy body is Hare’s Ice Dub in tan.

Orange thread and brown hackle with the peacock back rounds it out.

Based on Rob Denson’s Pearly Crippler; swapped out the front hackle with dyed deer hair (Interesting that the body hackle and deer hair were from the same dye bath; the deer hair stayed in a lot longer and soaked up more color).

hook - WFC Model 6 #6
thread - UTC 140 woodduck 
rib - small wire silver
body - medium tinsel opal 
body hackle - grizzly dyed ginger (4 Tsp Rit Golden Yellow, 1 Tsp Rit Camel)
shoulder - pheasant rump dyed black
collar/head - deer hair dyed ginger

Regards,
Scott

I asked because it looked familiar to me. No experience with Donal but I do know the Owner hooks and it does look very similiar.

Thanks it is a variant based on Chuck Kraft's crittermite, using his tail. I like the suede head and synthetic hackle legs and I find them faster to tie. Unfortunately we lost Chuck this year he was a tier and guide from down Virginia way (and a really great guy). Chuck's signature fly was the kreelex streamer. I fish this variant (size 4) for smallies and trout, it does well, rides hook up and head down like a hellgrammite trying to get back in the rocks. And the hook is a 9672 (95??) fat fingers
