Thread: Black 
Weight: Lead wire, sized to hook. 
Tail: Natural ringneck pheasant tail fibers 
Backstrap: Natural ringneck pheasant tail fibers 
Rib: Small Copper Wire 
Abdomen: Peacock Herl Body 
Hackle: Brown Rooster Saddle, look for something that is relatively soft, but still long enough to palmer over the body. On smaller flies you can even get away with a good quality hen neck.
