Are you looking for that specific fly? Because any place that sells a decent number of flies should have hellgrammite flies.
Do you tie? Because it just looks like a wooly bugger ( possibly hair for the tail instead of marabou) with dumbbell eyes, a shell casing (possibly turkey) and pinchers . Not sure what they used for the pinchers , but I'd end up using goose biots most likely.
Targeting smallies?

No I don't tie. I was given a couple just like this one. Can't get them anymore. I tried the plastic ones and they are not for me. Yes the small mouths love em. I just can't find em like this one.

It's a fairly sime pattern. I bet you'd find something very similar ( similar enough to fool smallies) at Cabelas or BP. Even just a black wooly bugger will work fine.
