    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

    [​IMG]


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

    [​IMG]


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

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

    [​IMG]


    trim body

    [​IMG]


    re-attach thread, tie in hackle

    [​IMG]


    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

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    tie in front hackle

    [​IMG]


    tie in peacock, wrap thorax

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


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