    Default Durris Shrimp or Lower Durris

    I've had a good search for this pattern and struggled.
    The best I can put together is

    Hook - Black
    Thread - Uni-8/0 Black
    Tag – Oval Silver
    Tail – Golden Olive & Fiery Brown Bucktail 25/75, Pearl micro Krystal Flash
    Rib – Oval Silver
    Rear Body – Holo Silver
    Front Body –Olive Ice Dub
    Hackle – Golden Olive Cock
    Wing – Orange Tanuki, Fiery Brown Fox, Pearl micro Krystal Flash
    Hackle – Olive Cock

    Is this correct? Any help appreciated.

    I have also seen the front body tied with black floss, sliver rib over.

    I tied this one from the dressing above. It looks similar to the one I got a quick look at on the Wye. Last summer when the standards had failed this fly caught fish so I think I need some in the box.

    A list of the dressing materials and some commentary on this pattern is also given in the Dec 2016 Trout & Salmon mag on page 25.
