About as simple as you get...kind of like the rest of the flies I tie. Basic green erstatz body, courtesy of the Roughfisher, and then green pheasant hackle. I use whatever beads I have sitting around and a very short shanked hook with a big gap in a two or four. I was using scud hooks, but I ran out. Honestly, tie some green crap on a hook, add hackle and a bead and throw it in front of a carp. I never pretended to be much of a tier. For that, check out Michael Gracie or the roughfisher. This ugly bugger works though.
