this is'nt it exactly....but imagine this fly with brown or tan spanflex legs :D

Image

basically goose biots for the tail and anntenna ....a wrap or two of ostrich herl at the back of the abdomen....the abdomen is a turkey biot wrapped over a slight body of thread....one orw two wraps of ostrich herl before tying in a wincase of scudback or nymph skin....the thorax is ostrich herl continued with spanflex legs tied into the thorax.

hope this helps

Pretty damn close.

The "Boss Hog" is only available at a great Asheville fly shop Curtis Wright Outfitters. The top picture is the true fly called a "Boss Hog" it is a commercially tied fly. I am not going to give up the secret of the manufacturer or real name. The bottom two are other color variations the middle has the best pic of the legs. Note the legs are square.

Recipe looks to be biot tails, rump of ostrich herl, biot body, ostrich/spanflex legs/ostrich herl and nymph skin wingcase, hook and bead of course.
Looks to me like the same for all, the light pattern for yellow stones, darker pattern for the others and a white/very light pattern for molts.
Try turkey tail for the abdomen and wingcase on the dark patterns for a more mottled effect.
Nice ties.
