Default Willow fly?

Anyone got a good Willow fly pattern they are willing to share? Going to Watts Bar soon for a weekend FF trip.

There is reference to an old standby pattern by the author of the book "Fishbugs" to a pattern called "the hatch master".....It looks incredibly easy to tie and I can definately see it matching the hatch....I did a quick google search for it and didn't come up with anything but if you have the book it's worth the look for it! The pattern consist's mainly of a yellow mallard wood duck flank feather...The tip of the feather's spine/vein is cut out to make the tails and then the bulk of the feather is flared back to form the body. basically it all gets tied on to a yellow adams! Hope that makes sense...If you want you can borrow the book or take a look at the pattern just let me know!

Thanks Brett, I'm thinking about tying some big Comparaduns on a #8 and #10 hooks in a dark grey or black. Maybe try some foam bodied ones also.
