Materials / Instructions:
Hook: 254NA 1Xshort, size 1/0 through 5/0.
Tail: A small bunch of long white or gray bucktail, then
two or three long white saddles tied in glat over the bucktail. Next,
four ginger saddles tied in as a veil around the white saddles, then tie some
purple Crystal Flash on each side. Then take two short badger hackles and tie
them in on either side of the tail: top this off with a long, pale gray, webby
saddle tied in flat and tie in a full plume of amber marabou over that.
Body: Translucent purple mylar yarn wrapped to
a point 3/8 of an inch from the eye of the hook.
Wing: It is a collar made of four different parts. First,
a sparse, one hair thick, collar of yellow bucktail long enough to extend to
the end of the amber marabou, then a sparse, one hair thick, collar of red
bucktail and last a sparse one hair thick collar of blue. Finish the fly by
tying in a plume of brownish gray marabou by the tail, doubling it, and
winding a full collar.
