Hook - standard dry sizes 12 - 16
Thread - Tan or Grey 8/0 or 12/0
Tail - white Antron Yarn
Body - muskrat dubbing
Hackle - grizzly

Start thread a little behind the eye and run down to the bend and back.  
Tie in tailing material along the hook shank and bind down at the hook bend.  The tail should be the same length as the hook shank or a little longer.  
Dub body up to a little behind the eye.
Tie in hackle, dry fly style.  Make one or two wraps only.  Tie off.  Form a small thread head.
Whip finish and remove fly from vise.  Trim hackle off beneath the hook if desired.  Dab of cement on the thread head.
Option - I switch to ice dubbing in grey or tan for the thorax area and build it up a little thicker than the abdomen.
