  • Hook: R200 or similarly shaped hook in a size to match the hatch (The one shown is a 16)
  • Silk: To match the hatch. This is for a dark olive so 8/0dark olive silk was used.

  • Body: Dubbing to match hatch This is dark olive Flyrite dubbing.
  • Wing: matched mallard quill wing slips tied in sidewinder style.
