thread - Uni 8/0 rusty dun 
shuck - Congo Hair brown  
abdomen - stripped quill dun/resin 
wing - Congo Hair baitfish grey

Beautiful, how do you fish this type.

Not sure, been wanting to get into more classic streamers and I saw this one and figured it was a good pattern to start with. I would just swing them down stream into some tail water/ slack water. 
 

I have a few more patterns to try out and tie up a dozen or so of each and give them a shot this spring. I always have woolly buggers on me but I thought I should change up my streamer game a little.

Its a piece of art for sure and is classic looking. I had heard that allot of those open version were trolled. Let us know how it works out.

LOL - I started searching for Deer Valley fly pattern, until I realized those are paint swatches in your background.  Nice ties @Bimini15

Tups Indespensible Dry tied Jingler style.

For those who do not know this type of fly utilzes a soft Hackle fronted by a slightly shorter dry fly Hackle.

The Jinglers I’ve seen, mostly on various U.K. sites, have a dry fly hackle fronted with a longer softhackle collar, often, but not always, partridge.

I was just fooling around with nothing particular in mind when the fly started to take shape.  This can function as a general attractor; moth imitations will be tied on smaller iron.

hook - WFC Model 6 #8
thread - UTC 140 tan 
body - pronghorn 
wing - Congo Hair shiner tan 
shoulder - sharptail grouse 
head/collar - pronghorn

Regards,
Scott
