    All that foam keeps it on top, although it may be a bit hard to pick out in chop; this one floats pretty low and is better used in calmer water.


    hook - Dai Riki 320 #16
    thread/rib - UTC 70 tan
    abdomen - dubbing tan
    overbody/overhead - 1mm foam tan
    wing - deer hair
    head - dubbing dark hare's ear
    indicator - 1mm foam orange


    mash down barb, attach thread and wrap back to bend

    taper foam strip (about 3/4 hook gap wide); tie in at bend

    brush on a little Super Glue and cover foam with thread wraps, finish at 60% mark; dub thread, dub body back to bend

    just tied some of these up, great pattern. looks great with a couple wraps of brown CDC in a split thread right before putting the indicator on at the end.
