It has a paired dyed tippet wing. Willie Gunn type tail. Holo gold body, palmered. Collar hackle, j.c. cheeks and red head. Bits of ripple flash each side. I copied it from another anglers fly, Tom O'Donnell from Co.Limerick. he uses it very successfully. He doesn't know its name either.

Looks like a tube variant of an Ally's Shrimp. Everything other than the yellow in the tail looks identical.
