Hook: Dry fly style
Thread: black
Hackle: Grizzly
Shellback: Peacock herl
Body: Yarn, dubbing, z-lon etc


 Developed by Ed Story in the mid 1950's. The fly and the method(s) to fish it was an instant success. Now fished worldwide. Many will use nothing else! TO FISH: Dress the hackles with floatant and fish dead-drift as a floating terrestrial in the surface film. If no hit near the end of the drift, jerk the fly beneath the surface and skip it across-stream with the rod tip, or strip it back to you with the line-control hand as a moving sub-surface emerger. TO FISH DEEP: Use a full sinking line (or sinking leader system) with a split-shot on the tippet 15" above the fly. Skip or strip the fly just off stream or lake bottom. EXPECT NEAR INSTANT SUCCESS.
