Undertaker (variant)

Hook: TMC 7999 #2-10 (use this as a comeback for winter runs in bigger sizes on dark days, and smaller sizes for cloudy summer days)

Thread: Danville 6/0, black

Tag: Mylar tinsel, flat, gold, size small

Butt: Green, then red floss

Body: Cactus chenille, black (looks just like peacock herl, "Peacock" cactus chenille has too much green for this application)

Wing: Arctic fox tail, black (tied forward and folded back for lift)

Throat: Saddle hackle fibers, black (from low on the feather for length and softness, but more hold more shape than hen)

Head: Black with UV resin

Beautiful fly.

Your materials, like @flytire's, amaze me.  A lot of people have crazy long bucket lists related to flyfishing. Mine's pretty short: two weeks on the limestone streams of PA and a day tying in SBPatt's tying room.

Some of you guys are tying great Steelhead flies.  Why don't you join the Steelhead and Salmon swap?

It would be appropriate to fish that on Jenny Lake.

Ha.  The colors reminded me of the attire of a friend with that name from many years ago.  Need to visit Wyoming someday to give this a try.
