More experimenting with spun-loop caribou.


hook - Tiemco 200 #6
thread - UTC 140 hot orange
hot spot/egg sac - thread
tail - elk hair
abdomen - caribou
ribbing - tying thread
body hackle - brown (downsize by 2)
wing - elk hair
front hackle - grizzly
thorax - peacock

start thread (set aside a length for ribbing) at 70% and wrap back to barb




build up egg sac with thread




clean, stack, measure (gap width) a clump of elk; tie in at front of sac, jam wraps to flare tail






wrap butts along shank up to 70%; trim, tie in rib and wrap back to sac






create loop; wax




cover tail with tape so it doesn't get trimmed with the body




insert a hefty clump of caribou in the clip, cut away from hide




insert in the loop, release from clip; spin (the baby formula mixer worked great)








wrap body, pack it tight; tie off thread and trim




trim body




re-attach thread, tie in hackle




spiral hackle through body to sac, capture tip with rib, then continue rib to front; tie off rib, trim hackle and rib








clean, stack, measure (even with tail) another clump of elk; tie in, cover butts with thread






tie in front hackle




tie in peacock, wrap thorax






wrap hackle through thorax, tie off, half hitch x 2, SHHAN
