Sort of a Clouser spin off. A super simple pattern that's highly effective for a variety of fresh and salt water fish. I use this pattern for Bass, Walleye, Trout and a ton of other fresh water fish, but I do tend to tie it on stainless as they're a super salt water pattern for Snook. A true double duty fly!

Step By Step:
Start with a very secure thread base, apply a bit of head cement.
Tie in your eyes. Here's a quickie on tying in dumbell eyes if you have trouble.
Cut material just a bit longer than your hook length. Use MORE than you think you're going to need. Just like most materials this will condense when it gets wet and if you don't tie a much bigger profile body you'll end up with a "white noodle"!
Completely cover the shank. Yup, all the way around it!
Tie it down just like a clouser; eye, behind the eyes, down to the bend. Come back up and leave your thread just behind the eyes.
Fold the rest of the material back and secure. Whip finish or half hitch and cement.
