Name that Fly

Can anyone identify a nymph pattern in my box that is made of the following marerials:
 
Hook: 16
Tail: pheasant tail
Body: wound brass/copper wire
Abdoman: hare's ear or gray squirel
wing case: pheasant tail
Legs: pulled out abdoment fur
 
One of those patterns that one ties but forgets where the source was or name. thanks

    sounds like a skip nymph.  I believe you can find pictures in this forum.

    thanks all for your help. Unless I misread the orginal article, I just wrapped the body with copper and omitted the fur. hope no one sues for plagiarism.
