    Found this on a NZ site; don't know much about Kiwi bugs but it looked cool.

    hook - Dai Riki 320 #10
    thread - MFC 8/0 olive/UTC 140 tan
    tail - golden pheasant tippets
    rib - x-fine wire gold
    body - dubbing olive
    body hackle - brown (undersize by 2)
    wing - deer hair
    head - deer hair (spun/clipped)


    mash barb, start thread at 2/3 mark, tie in rib and wrap to point above barb
