Butt:light green floss
Body:black STS dubbing
Ribbing:medium silver oval tinsel
Hackle:spey feather (burnt goose on this one)
Collar:mallard flank
Wing:white saddle hackle tips
Tying Instructions: Only special instructions is that I countertie the tinsel so it wraps across the spey hackle. Helps solidify it for fishing (for display, I don't worry about it). But keeps some of the brittle hackle from being torn up while fishing.
