A pattern I found in Dave Hughes book Wet Flies.

A simple pattern with a history of taking trout.

The pattern calls for silk thread for the body, hares dub for the thorax, and a grouse feather for the hackle.
The top fly is tied with traditional silk thread and the bottom is tied with cotton thread.

A Couple of mean Fish Fetchers there. I Think the top fly has more sheen to the body. Neat Tie.
