Notes on tying:
1. Wrap body with polyporpylene yarn (cream, olive, or dun).
2. Palmer the body with two hackles to keep the fly floating high.
3. Add one hackle as collar (light dun) to keep it floating high while skittering the fly.
4. Tie in whitetail hair with the tips pointing back for wing and trim off the butt ends in front for the head (like elk hair caddis).
This is a modification by Tim Baker of a Al Troth patten that is used on trout and panfish. Cast it up and across stream and make hard mends to make the fly dart. After the fly is down stream raise the rod to retrieve making it skitter back. Apply a generous amount of floatant to keep the fly floating high.
