Inspired by a FB post from David Southall in relation to alternative Mayfly patterns when the Trout aren't quite playing ball and you start getting refusals on more traditional patterns.

Tied on a size 12 Partridge dry fly barbless, with a yellow chenille tail, pheasant tail legs, mayfly superfine dubbing and a whiting high and dry grizzle march brown hackle.

Although David's pattern had a brown chenille body, I've substituted this for a lightly bleached yellow chenille body more in keeping with a more traditional mayfly pattern with legs to act as a trigger to bring fish up from the depths.
