Hook - Daiichi 1150 #14
Tail - Natural Pheasant Tail
Abdomen - Natural Hair Ear Dubbing
Rib - Gold Wire
Thorax - Natural Hair Ear Dubbing
Wing Case - Natural Pheasant Tail

I tied in the tail and left the PT long for use as the wing case. Dubbed the abdomen, ribbed it, dubbed the thorax, tied the PT over as the wing case.

Mudbug I jacked your idea and used PT as well for the tail and wingcase. The one thing that has kept me from devoting a lot of time to tying this fly is working the tail material from the Hare's mask. I can never get it the way I want it, and nothing I do seems to fix it. Once I saw Mudbug's deviation from the pattern I knew immediately I liked it, and gave it a shot.

Materials:
Tail: Pheasant Tail Fibers
Ribbing: Small Gold Wire
Body: Brown Hares Dubbing
Thorax: Brown Hares Dubbing
Wingcase: Pheasant Tail Fibers and Pearl Tinsel
Head: 2mm bead

On a side note, my camera took a swim on my recent Pike outing and the macro looks like S.....well poo.....so sorry about the poor picture quality!
