Hook
#14 English Bait Hook
Thread
Burnt Orange 8/0
Weight
8-10 lead wraps centered at the "belly" of the hook bend.
Tail
Pheasant tail feather fibers
Abdomen
Pheasant tail feather fibers
Wingcase
Turkey tail feather fibers (sprayed with adhesive to prevent splitting)
Thorax
4-6 peacock herl strands twisted together with the tying thread
Legs
game bird soft hackle fibers

From what I know, these "tarcher style" flies are credited to Ken Iwasama.  The keel-weighted, hook point-up, back arched attitude of the nymph creates a realistic profile of a swimming nymph.  I just recently began tying these but the pheasant tail and stone fly patterns I have tried are encouraging me to try other patterns with this hook.
