Have you found a recipe? It looks fairly straightforward once you have the trilobal chenille. Start with the eyes tied in just like a Clouser. Lay a thread base to the back and tie in some white ostrich mixed with flash. Make the ostrich around 2 to 3 times the hook length. Tie in some pearl trilobal chenille and stop about half way to the eyes and tie off. Tie in some red trilobal and wrap to behind the eye. Tie off. Move yor thread to just in front of the eyes and tie a small clump of white buck tail Clouser style on the shaft extending just past the hook length (same side of hook as hook bend). This fly rides hook up Clouser style. Do the same with some grey buck tail then black buck tail. Make a neat head and tie off.

I hope this helps. Email me if you need more help.

Gavin, just remember you need a heavy fly in the surf. Medium lead eyes or bigger, depending on the pattern. I even wrap some of my flies with lead wire and still use lead eyes.
