Yes a gold tag. Not necessary but I do it to satisfy a note in my fly tying text book "Fly Tying" by Sturgis..." gives the fly a more finished appearance."

The recipe for the fly gets morphed around from tyer to tyer. The first one that I saw was shown for me to copy and it had Gold Pheasant tippet for the tail... the "shop flies generally use dun hackle for the tail.

The hook in the picture is an Eagle Claw AO56NT-12. A wet/dry fly hook which is how the fly is supposed to be fished. The finish on the hook is nickel teflon which makes it look grey. Substitute any 1x-2x long shank hook. The old Mustad 9671 is a good match.
I used lime 6/0 thread.
Body is med. olive chenille.
Hackle is med. blue dun
Wing is one or two ring neck pheasant rump feathers tied flat on top of the body.

Leslie Hinshaw from Meeker Co.originated the fly. The Hinshaw family use to fish it with a spinning rod and a clear plastic bubble. The flat wing is said to give the fly a killing side to side motion as it is slowly retrieved behind the bubble. It's said the family always out-fished nearby fisherman and gained notoriety after many yelled over to them...."hey what are you guys usin'." I worked with Hinshaws cousin Delbert who tied flies for Leslie to sell and he showed me the fly the way it was tied at the time. (1976).

I like it....did you have a species choice when you made this? I am thinking steelhead (but apart from boobs, that is my next go-to thought ).

Do you have a tying list for that and would you think beadhead or cone to augment the pattern?

Bead could work well. I made it with the Trout in Strawberry in mind. It is a Fall choice as the Koke in Strawberry are turning red. This either triggers that or the unsettled weather stirring up worms.
This one is as follows

Hook: Streamer #4 to #8
Thread: Red
Tail: Marabou and Pearl Flashabou
Body: Blended Angora Goat and UV red in a dubbing loop. (I prefer UV2 by Spirit River)
Weight optional. I generally do not and I let the line put it in the zone.

Variation, cover hook with the Pearl Flashabou first, then spaced wraps of the dubbing so that is shows through.
