Parks Fly Shop - Red Ass

Here's my version of an old fly that I still tie for Parks Fly Shop in Gardiner, MT located just outside the North entrance to the park.  It's a simple wet fly to tie.  Use it as a dropper or swing a pair of them through a nice run.  The brook trout in the park really like this fly, fished behind a Coachman Trude makes for a deadly combination.

Hook: MFC 7076, size 14-16
Thread: red danville
Tail: red yarn, needloft 
Body: peacock
Rib: gold wire
Hackle: grizzly hen soft hackle
