    Found this on the Caithness site (a font of Brit stuff); guessing on the body, though, since I only had the one pic to go by.


    hook - Mustad 3906 #6
    thread - UTC 140 black
    butt/rib - mylar red
    body - Ice Dub black
    legs - pheasant tail black
    wing - deer hair
    head - deer hair spun/clipped

    mash barb; start thread, wrap back part way down bend

    tie in mylar, wrap up to point above barb
