    It looks like Midge Flash from Hareline. You can go to Harelines website and look, they have pictures of their material.

    Default Hareline Krystal flash

    Looks like Hareline's krystal flash to me, wrapped over an underbody of yarn with the butt left showing. Rather than trimming the ends of the flash at the eye, they just laid them back, wrapped once around to keep them splayed and whip finished. At least that would be my first attempt at duplicating it. I'll bet all of the products we've mentioned would make an acceptable substitute anyway, even if they aren't exactly what's used on that fly...

    Body / wing - Krystal Flash, KF4 green...pretty much like Scott laid it out.
    Butt - Uni-Yarn, fluorescent 2-ply, orange.

    Not sure about the thread, but I'll take a stab and say gsp in forest green.

    Looks like a pretty good fly, sort of a "sockeye lantern" variant.
