Here's a link to a recipe for the traditional Doc Spratley (sorry, but I thought that I had already responded to your post a long time ago):  http://www.flytyingbug.com/threads/doc-spratley.133/

Here are 2 videos that show how to tie this pattern:

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

So a Doc Spratly is a very effective pattern. Originally tied on shorter hook shanks to imitate a caddis pupa. But when stretched out on 3x or 4x hook shanks. It makes an absolutely deadly minnow pattern in a streamer style.
