ok...so this is my fly pattern. I am not sure it will catch fish but it was nice to be back at the Vice again for a bit.

Hook: Size 14 2xl
Thin black foam
black dyed deer hair (wanted elk but was having trouble finding it)
6/0 black thread.


Cut a black strip of foam approximately the width of the gap of the hook.
Tie in near the eye and work back to the bend with the thread. work back to the eye covering the hook generously.
Attach the foam near the head. Wrapping semi tight loops down the foam to the bend.
Fold the foam over and tight down the foam with more space between thread turns back to the eye(leave the foam intack above the eye for later use..
Cut and even the black deer hair in the stacker.
Tie in the deer hair so that it was approx. the length of the hook. Tied down approximately an 1/8 inch towards the bend where you tied down the foam last.
The hair will begin to spin...tie it down tight and cut the butt ends off.
Fold the front of the foam back over the butts and tie it down forming a head.
Whip finish and cut the thread.

Not sure it will catch fish or even float...but it looked ok in the end.

boss,
I tie a grasshopper pattern similar to this. it catches fish but at times it has trouble floating right side up. go to youtube and type in clodhopper grasshopper fly pattern or something like that. if nothing else, it looks cool.

I would say send what you can. I can appreciate the stress, I just lost over $300,000 in accounts this past week.
