TAIL: Yellow or any light color Microfibetts or fine paintbrush fibers**

WING: Coastal Deer Hair** & Natural CDC**

BODY: Olive Turkey Biot**

DUBBING: Any dry fly dubbing like Fine & Dry, etc., in a grayish color that’s not too dark will do. (Davie’s recipe calls for a mixture of mole, rabbit & red squirrel).
