The name must have something to do with the species it's fished for, since the fly is pretty subdued in color.

hook - Mustad 3906 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - hen dun
rib - small oval tinsel silver
body - hare's ear/pink beaver
hackle - hen dun
wing - duck quill

Gorgeous! I am admire the subtleties of the color scheme, and the delicate proportions. Finely crafted fly, Scott.

Great photos too. ;)
