Normally, the folks at the airport who check my bags leave things pretty much undisturbed.  When I opened the one my tying stuff was in this morning, things were all over the place. I grabbed a couple of the feathers and piece of yarn that were loose and this is the result; kind of a companion to the Leftover Octopus.

thread - Uni 8/0 chartreuse 
tail - yarn chartreuse 
rib - small wire gold
body - dubbing chartreuse 
body hackles - grizzly dyed chartreuse/hot orange
1st shoulder - pheasant rump dyed chartreuse (1 Tbs Rit Neon Yellow/1 cup water)
2nd shoulder - hen badger dyed neon peach (2 Tsp Rit Golden Yellow, 1/8 Tsp Rit Coral/2 cups water)

Scott

This fly has been crushing them lately for me.  I fish it dry with floatant on the hackle only.  It tends to want to float hook down which makes it look like a spider. 

T.E. PRITT'S RED CLOCK

HOOK: #12 2XL DRY FLY

THREAD: ORANGE #70

HEAD: PEACOCK HERL – NATURAL

HACKLE: COCK PHEASANT BREAST FEATHER

THORAX: PEACOCK HERL- NATURAL

ABDOMEN: ORANGE SILK

I LOVE the "and" type patterns.  Love how you tied in the herl first, then the hackle.  Very nice tie.
