Foam version of an Atlantic salmon pattern. Tied here as a salmonfly; don't have a scud hook big enough to handle a bug this size so I subbed with the TFS iron (shorter shank than the Dai Riki 280) and it seemed to balance okay.

hook - TFS 2305 #4
thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
core - 25lb Mason
rib - x-small wire gold
Underbody - moose body hair
body/head - 2mm foam rust
body hackle - brown (undersize by 3)
wing - elk hair
thorax - shmootz from the base of an orange/grizzly hackle
hackle - grizzly dyed orange (1TBS Rit orange, 1 cup water)
front wing - elk hair
