A simple general attractor; with that dubbing, the rib is kinda superfluous.

hook – Mustad 3906 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 fluoro orange
tag - tying thread
rib - Mirage Flash opal
body - Ice Dub Hare's Ear
hackle - partridge


Regards,
Scott

Looks like a dandy searching emerger pattern. The flashy body reminds me of an air bubble enveloping the body. Very nice.

I'd expect, also, a lot of warmwater potential among the piscivorous.

Scott,
I am looking at your pattern above in utter amazement! Several years ago I tied a weighted nymph pattern called a Silver Nymph from a pack of dubbing that I always thought faded in the sun. It was hares ear for sure but was almost white with plenty of sheared antron in the mix. The dubbing fur you used (Ice Dub -- Hares Ear) is a dead ringer for the dubbing that I thought I would never see again! I even experimented with mixing pure white rabbit dubbing with silver antron but it was not the same! Thank you for displaying Niemy's Gray and listing the materials in the recipe. I need to procure some Ice Dub right away!
Wait....I have a recent picture on my smart phone (smarter than me)! I will try and get that posted her very soon (Help Ray!) I like your pattern much better esp. the thread head and tag (the color thereof). What a great discovery....for me!
A thousand thank you's go your way Scott,
Doug
