I was planning on an SXS but here are the basics...

Hook - #14 TMC 200R (Think 3x long emerger hook)
Lead - A bunch wraps of 0.015 lead wire (I tried the lead tape and hated it)
Thread - Danville 210D in Chartreuse laid flat for the body to create a taper. Uni 8/0 in black for the thorax.
Body - Olive vinyl D-Rib with some brown sharpie highlights.
Thorax - AZ Sparkle Nymph dubbing in olive/black
Head - Two 2.4mm Olive/brown brass beads.
