Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: Mustad 3906 Size 6
Thread: 8/0 Orvis #63 Camel

Tail: Dark Brown Duck Secondary

Tying Instructions: Standard wet fly construction, the only real trick (if that) would be the golden pheasant tippet and turkey quill wing combination. At first I tried to marry the two but the tippet just kept falling all apart. I just ended up tying in a "slip" of tippets and then the turkey wing quill slips on top of that.
Presentation Tips: standard wet fly
