Default gunslinger fly pattern?

Anyone familiar with this one? I have established a contact with a lodge in Montana that wants them. I want to tie some up for him, but when I googled it I found about 23,593 variations of this.

He says it's a chrominid with mylar emerger wings.

Thanks!

I found this gunslinger on my first Google search:

Probably not the one you're looking for but I've seen similar patterns tied with mylar wing buds. I even tied up a few but can't remember where I got the pattern. Seems like it was a well known tyer's pattern, maybe even someone locally. I'll keep looking.

Here's an epoxy version using mylar, similar to the ones I tied:

Thanks for those links. I should have probably told you that the guy told me it is nothing like that. It has ribbing over dubbing for the thorax, and a thick dubbing for the abdomen, along with legs.

I have fabricated what it sounds like to me based on their description. I wish I could take a pic for you all, but can't get that going here.

3 years later you've probably found this by now but I just recently saw this nymph on a tv fishing show and began a search for it. Here is the only place where I found it:

I like it so have tied some up.

Sportsman's warehouse carries an awesome gunslinger pattern. I buy a couple dozen at a time, great fly.
