that is sounds like one of sam slaymaker's trout fry series form about he 1950-60's.

they were typically tied upon 6x long streamer hooks and were dressed rather sparsly. it is very difficult to say what is sparse but you're talking about 7 to 10 fibers of each color bucktail and slightly more of the squirrel tail.

the wing's length is about 1/2 gap past the bend.

Here you are:

Little Rainbow Trout Bucktail

Body: Pinkish white Fur.

Tail: A small bunch of green bucktail slightly longer than the gap of the hook.

Ribbing: Narrow Flat Silver Tinsel.

Throat: A very small bunch of pink bucktail, as long as the tail.

Wings: Of four very small seperated bunches of hair, each extending beyond the tail. A very small bunch of white bucktail over which is a very small bunch of pink bucktail, slightly blended. Over this is a very small bunch of green bucktail, topped and slightly blended with a very small bunch of natural badger hair.

Cheeks: Jungle Cock.

Head: Black.

Originated by Samuel R. Slaymaker II of Gap, Pennsylvania.
