    hook - Dai Riki 320 #12
    thread/body - Danville Flat-wax yellow
    shuck - Congo Hair brown
    back- 2mm foam tan
    wing - Congo Hair white
    hackle - brown
    band - UTC 140 red
    legs - rubber medium cornsnake

    Saw this in the latest American Angler - trailing shuck like an emerger, body like an attractor and wing like a cripple; quite a combination.


    mash barb and attach thread at 60% mark

    whip finish, trim thread (don't leave a big bump/tag like I did) and SHHAN on the band; trim legs and it's done
