Based on some flies Yellowstone guide Walter Wiese sent me years ago in return for some cream foam I found in a craft store; added the CH underwing. Real basic stuff but it floats well, is visible, makes a nice splat when it hits the water and catches fish.

hook - WFC Model 6 #8
thread - Uni 6/0 tan 
body - Starburst dubbing tan
overbody/head - 2mm foam tan
underwing - Congo Hair Shiner Tan
wing - deer hair
legs - medium rubber brown 
indicator - 1mm foam orange

Regards,
Scott
