Can anybody tie this fly?.

Hello,
 
A while back I witnessed a man down on the Cumberland river using (and tying) a very unique streamer type fly.  When finished it looks like a silver minnow.   The man started with a very long shank hook, he then tied some lead wire around the shank about the frist 1/3 of the shank back from the eye.  Then he built up the body using a fluffy/shaggy type of yarn, in pearl, that looked like tiny christmas tinsel.  Then he took some very long, dark grey/black fur and tied it on krogerfeedback talktosonic talktowendys facing forward over the eye and he tied some pearl/cream fur facing forward under the eye. he then tied 4 tiny red feathers under the body about where the lower fins are on a trout and two tiny feathers up front where the eyes of the fish would be.
 
thanks
iosman

    Doesn’t sound hard to tie. Just another minnow imitation.
