Here it is. I just took a quick shot on the vise of this fly which was tied back in the early 90s. I can see a little rust on the hook where one tied on the EC 254 Cad had rusted a bit and stained the hook. I don't recall what hook this one is tied on. This is a very simple fly; but it worked damned well in its day.

1. Head/eyes - hot orange FlyMaster Plus, black eyes can be mono or metal hourglass.

2. Body - chartreuse chenille.

3. Tail - chartreuse bucktail topped with a bit of chart Ultra Hair with a few strands of chart Chrystal Flash on each side; three strands of pearl Flashabou for flash tail.
