Measure 4-5 moose mane tips to be the length of the hook.
Tie the moose mane tips in at the bend of the hook.
Move the thread forward about ¾’s up the hook.
Tie in a small clump of dark olive calf tail.
Tie in front and around the base of the calf tail to form a single upright wing stem.
Move the thread to the back of the hook and tie in a strand of olive fentex and the yellow monocord or floss.
Wrap the olive fentex forward to form a tapered body and tie off behind the wing stem. (Do not cut off excess material).
Wrap the monocord or floss forward to form 4 to 5 bright yellow ribs on the fly, tie off and cut excess.
Tie in one olive/grizzly hackle, wrap around the wing stem, parachute style, and tie off.
Take the excess olive fentex, make two wraps behind the wing and then wrap in-front of the wing to form a small head on the fly, making sure the fentex is wrapped under the hackle.
Whip finish, head cement and the fly is ready for the water.
