thread - Danville 6/0 black
abdomen - opalescent mylar medium
wing - bleached elk
thorax - peacock herl

Mash down barb; wrap thread back about gap width from the eye

tie in mylar, wrap halfway down the bend and back to where you started; tie off and trim

clean, stack, measure (tips to the hook bend) a clump of elk; tie in, trim butts

tie in some peacock herl

Image


twist around thread, take a couple wraps, then tie in hackle
