Not a whole lot of info on this one, although it appears to have been around for a while; apparently popular on B.C. stillwaters at one time. Only thing I added to the recipe I found was the wire counter rib, to protect the ostrich herl. Weight optional.

hook - Mustad 9671 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black
counter rib - x-small wire silver
tail - hen black
abdomen - acrylic yarn black
rib - ostrich herl black
shellback - goose white
hackle - hen black
head - peacock herl


Regards,
Scott

Looks deadly . . . (although I'd be tempted to ruin it with a hackle collar).

Looks very deadly! Those white wing buds spell winner for me. I bet this in the spring time tied on an 16-18 would be obscene fished to baetis risers.

Do you suspect that the name of the fly is an answer to the Montana nymph?

I thought it was a loose woman from Boise.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
