    I tie mine with a brown thread and white yarn.
    Size 12 or 14 hook
    Tie in brown thread and then tie in white yarn and wrap to the rear over the white yarn and do not cut off the brown thread excess. Use it as a rib.
    tie in a brown double wrap to form a tail of sorts. Then under wrap the white yarn and return the brown thread to the tie in point.
    Wrap white yarn to build the body and tie off at eye.
    Rib with brown excess thead and tie in at head.
    Worm should have a brown tail and head and brown wraps as ribs,
    and a fat white body made to shape.

    I like your tie also. Nice.

    I use dental dam material cut into 3/16 strips for the tapered body and then counter wind a silver wire for a rib, then 4 turns of black ostrich for the head
