I don't fish a lot of dries but I see a simple, effective dry in this pattern.
The CDC wings are 2 small CDC feathers tied in on top at the back of hackle. The hackle in front is 2 types of hackle - 1 Silver Badger and 1 Grizzly Coachman Brown. The tail feathers are Coq de Leon (Indio Palometa). The body is grey silk yarn.
