Same process as the Redhorse Leech with a natural zonker tail, but believe it or not the body is tied using fibers from the fur hood of a woman's winter coat. It was in the lost and found at work and I kept staring at that fur hood thinking I could tie something with that. After nobody claimed the coat in over a year I couldn't stand it any longer. A little ice dub on the collar and brushed out finishes the fly. Looks like a minnow in the water.

Materials are where you find them. I admire your willpower Jon. Doubt I'd have made 6 months. Just a hint for you though, when in any line behind a woman in mink, resist the temptation. LOL

Ha! Chasing around women in designer furs with a scissors probably won't go over well, but the point is that materials don't always need to be purchased from the fly shop for sure. Case in point is the mop fly which also works so well. I'm not above stopping the truck for road kill either as long as it's legal to possess the fur or feathers.
