    Here is the recipe for the Thunderhead that I use found at this site: http://www.uky.edu/~agrdanny/flyfish...r/smpatrns.htm

    Hook: Mustad 94840 #12-18
    Thread: Grey or black
    Wing: White Calf tail, upright and divided
    Tail: Brown & grizzly hackle fibres, mixed
    Body: Muskrat (or Possum)
    Hackle: Brown and grizzly mixed

    I use Superfine Adams grey dubbing in place of the muskrat and often don't bother using 2 colors of hackle. This fly has definately caught its share of fish!

    It ain't nothing more that a bushy adams made to ride high in the pocket water and riffles! Make a few extra hackle wraps than you might on an Adams.
