I have been playing around with a number of different tail, abdomen, thorax, collar and bead combinations for these attractor patterns. I am leaning towards using the TMC 100 SP BL hook exclusively, for these guys and have a bunch of Datum glo-brite on order to use for the collars...that stuff is the brightest floss on the market...

Datum Glo Brite Floss - UK

I like to use them as my lead fly in a two fly set up and have had a great deal of success with this pattern...
