This is one of the simplest flies to tie and catches a majority of fish for me during the year. I tie it on a size 4 or 6 curved nymph hook, tie in the rubberlegs material for the tails and then attach variegated chenille in the color you see in the pic. I then attach the legs up the body and the antennae. Wrap the chenille up the hook and tie it off behind the eye and you're done. I usually weight this with about 20 wraps of .030 non-lead wire. I also tie them in darker colors, but the color you see in the pic is the most productive.
