Hook: Light wire nymph hook for fresh water pattern, #10 – 6/0, and Mustad 34011 long shank stainless steel for salt patterns. The large kingfish patterns can be tied on Trey Combs Gamakatsu.
Thread: 3/0, white or colour to match foam. I sometimes use red thread at the front tie-in position to imitate gills.
Tail: Calftail in smaller sizes and bucktail in larger sizes. Krystal Flash is added to the tail in colours of your choice.
Under body: Pearl Flashabou for smaller sizes and pearl Crystal Chenille for larger sizes.
Body: Plaztazote Foam, Etha Foam or packaging foam cut into a rectangular form with a wedge cut into the end at the tail side. The width of the foam for a #10 hook is ± 3mm and 8mm for a 6/0.
