    Another Wulff variation; possibly originated in Colorado. Kinda played around with the sequence to tie the body - instructions I saw had just peacock wrapped, then ribbed with floss; I wanted a more RW look so I wrapped/overlapped herl/Uni-stretch. Can't imagine it makes a bit of difference; tie it however you like.


    hook - Mustad 94840 #12
    thread - Uni 8/0 camel
    tail - calftail
    body - peacock herl/Uni-stretch yellow
    wing - calftail
    hackle - brown


    Mash down barb, start thread at 75% mark

    clean, stack, clean, stack, clean, stack, measure (hook length) a clump of calftail; tie in (lean on it - I popped the thread twice but the wing's not going anywhere), trim at an angle, cover with thread and a bit of Sally

    clean, stack, measure (shank length) a smaller clump of calftail; tie in, wrap forward to junction with wing butts, trim and smooth with thread (and a little more Sally)
