A Danish seatrout fly of unknown origin. Use your favorite barred waterfowl flank for the tail/collar; I went with redhead, which proved to be just as unruly as mallard.

hook - Mustad 9671 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 white
tail - waterfowl flank
rib - small wire silver
body - Ice Dub pearl
hackle - grizzly
thorax - dubbing (seal called for in original; chopped rug yarn used here) orange (lots of color options here)
collar - waterfowl flank

Regards,
Scott

Gorgeous wet fly. ;)

Have you thought of doing a “tups” version? Might make a nice pair.

Bookmarking as another impressionistic/suggestive baitfish/minnow form. Glad you tied and posted it.
