Hook: Daiichi 1110 #18-28
Thread: White 8/0
Rib: Small copper wire
Body: white thread
Thorax: Gray superfine dub

Start thread behind eye and wrap back to halfway point of hook. Tie in copper wire and wrap thread back to above the barb, covering the wire. Then wrap thread back to the starting point, creating a smooth tapered body. Wrap copper wire back towards eye, creating an evenly ribbed abdomen. Tie off copper wire and trim excess. Using adams gray superfine dub, create a thorax. Whip finish fly.
