Been a while since anyone posted anything fly tying related so I thought I'd give it a go........

Johnny Miller (not the golfer) developed this pattern--I haven't fished it yet. However, it has many of the attributes that I like in a fly, like small, seems to be quiet, good colors for clear water and bright days. Hope I get to try it out soon.....

Hook: Mustad 34007, #4
Thread: Chartreuse flat waxed, Denier 210
Tail: Tan Craft Fur, barred with brown Sharpie
Flash: Chartreuse Krystal flash or Flashabou
Body: Ice Dub UV Tan, didn't worry about a dubbing loop, just twist and wrap.
Collar: Chartreuse rabbit fur, clipped from the hide and tied in on top of the weight
Weight: Mini size, 1/8 diameter Brass/nickle plated eyes, tied on the under side of the hook
Nose: One tan saddle hackle, palmered a couple of times

Hope the redfish like it.....

Bart
