Tail - Pheasant-tail-like colored guard hairs from an animal fur patch.

Ribbing – Copper wire

Abdomen - Pheasant tail fibers

Split case wire - Single strand of UTC Ultra-wire brand in small to BR size (wire diameter decreases with hook size) in the fluorescent/hot yellow or fluorescent orange color

Now, that's a really interesting looking nymph! I need to try this on my PMD hungry little darlings in the back pond! I really like this one Norm! Keep them coming please!

Very cool fly. Mine are opposite. Yellow foam wing case , and a black or brown wire splitting it.

Very productive nymphs.

I like it. PT variations are always great flies. The split wing wire is very cool.
