Does anybody have a Gray Drake recipe that they wouldn't mind sharing?? This is my first summer up here and I am trying to get my dry box setup, never tied a drake of any kind before and haven't found any good recipe's to work off of.
Any help would be great
Check out John Karakashian's Grey Drake recipe on the current fishing report page.

moose main tail, gray or muskrat body, grizzly hackle clipped top and bottom, black thread. Great spinner pattern, worked awesome for me last year on the PM.

Thanks for the tips guys......I tied this one up....what do you think?? Seems pretty basic, I kept the body thin, moose man tail, gray body, grizzly hackle with a white turkey flats post.
Looks like a winner to me!! Good luck.
For brown drakes you won't find a better pattern then the Robert's Yellow Drake. With it's deer hair body tied parachute it floats great. The pattern you tied looks good. For all my parachute posts I have gone to EP fibers. Dries with one castsand easy to tie with.
