hook - Dai Riki 125 #16
thread - Danville 6/0 hot pink
abdomen - mylar braid pearl

Mash barb; start thread, extend wraps back to point above barb and return to point

melt end of mylar braid (original called for tan; all I had was pearl so I colored with a tan marker), extend gap width past bend; tie in, trim

clean, stack, measure (extend to back of body) a clump of deer hair; tie in, trim
