    Ted Kraimer's tilt-wing variation, with the deer hair body style common to the Michigan tying community. Tied here for a March Brown, this has possibilities for lots of other bugs.


    hook - Mustad 94840 #12
    thread - Danville 6/0 brown
    tail - moose body
    body - deer hair
    rib - tying thread
    wing - deer hair
    hackle - grizzly dyed brown
    thorax - dubbing tan


    mash barb, start thread at 70% mark (reference point for wing); wrap back to point above barb

    clean, stack, measure (hook shank) a clump of moose body; tie in, wrap butts to 70% mark

    clean, stack, measure (tips should extend to the back of the bend) a clump of deer hair

    2 soft loops, slowly apply/release/apply tension and let the hair surround the hook shank

    spiral rib to the bend, then a couple tight wraps to flare the tips; return crossing wraps to 70% mark, tie off, trim, smooth with thread
