Didn’t remember dyeing stuff in rust ; found the bag digging for something else and liked the color. With a bit of imagination, it’s sort of an October Caddis; I’ll skip the thorax next time since it gets buried.

hook - Sierra 7999 #8
thread - UTC 70 burnt orange
tail- pheasant rump dyed rust (1 Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange, 1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow/1 cup water)
rib - small wire copper
underbody - Orvis Saltwater thread fluoro orange
body - medium tinsel pearl
thorax - aftershaft dyed orange (1 Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange/ 1 cup water)
wing - deer hair
shoulder - pheasant rump dyed orange
hackle - badger dyed rust

Regards,
Scott
