Hook I use Dai Riki #300 - A little more expensive - but spend it wear it matters. Cheap hooks lose fish or never even give you a chance.
ThreadWhatever you're comfortable with. I use white 8/0 and color it with Sharpies to my liking.
Tail and sheathAntron yarn sparsely. Pale olive, tan or apple green - occasionally pale yellow.
BodyAntron yarn, Hare's ear yarn blend ostrich herl, peacock herl, brown wild turkey biots or pheasant tail. I like the iridescence of peacock and the bronze effect some turkey has.
RibFine silver, gold or mylar/holoshimmer thread wrapped counter to the other body materials.
Wing/Legs/HacklePreferably cheap dyed 'lemon' wood duck imitation, sparsely tied on either side of the body. Might consider using 2 very thin brown or black rubber legs about 1/5 times the length of the hook shank tied midway in the thorax.
Bead headSmall plastic pearl bead - craft shop variety, unlessyou're your fly tying supplier has started carrying them - then pay up to get the ones individually autographed by the author in invisible ink. You may have to build up the hook with thread and us
