Art Winnie's Michigan hexagenia pattern from the 20's. I beefed up the tail a bit to give it a bit more buoyancy - the original pattern was tied with 3 bucktail fibers.


hook - TMC 5212 #6
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - moose body hair
rear hackle - brown
rib - small tinsel gold
body - Congo Hair gold
front hackle - brown
wing - duck quill segment


mash barb, start thread, wrap to bend

clean, stack, measure (hook length) some moose body; tie in/trim
