This pattern is #12 in his list of his 12 favorite flies.

12. Iron Blue Nymph:
Hook: 14, 15
Silk: crimson or Claret
Hackle: two turns short Cock Jackdaw throat
Tail: two or three soft white fibers tied short
Body: dark mole spun on crimson or claret silk with two or three turns of silk exposed at the tail.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
