A vintage Adirondack lake pattern originally tied to represent a moth. Made a few changes to the original; swapped out the white chenille body for herl and mallard tail/wing for wood duck, just for a slightly different look.

hook - Dai Riki 280 #12
thread - Danville 6/0 red
tag - floss (1/2 strand) red
tail - wood duck flank
rib - small wire gold
body - peacock herl bleached
hackle - hen brown
wing - wood duck flank


Regards,
Scott

Got a little over zealous on the cement!   I like this pattern for fishing it's not that far from the TG bumblepuppy

The example I saw had a pronounced head so I gave it an extra 2 coats.
