    This one's been around for a while in various forms; thought the front-hackled version looked cool. Tried tying the tail down with tag end of thread but found 2 bobbins worked better for me.


    hook - Tiemco 5212 #12
    thread - Danville 6/0 brown (x2)
    tail/back - deer hair
    body - 1mm foam orange
    hackle (body) - ginger
    hackle (front) - brown


    mash barb, attach thread at 70% point and wrap back to point above barb

    tie in a strip of foam (about 3mm wide)

    tie in hackle (undersize by one hook); let bobbin hang at tie-in

    start second thread bobbin at 75% mark

    wrap foam forward and tie off/trim at 70% mark

    wrap body hackle forward; tie off and trim

    clean and stack a clump of deer hair

    measure for length (extend hook gap length behind)

    transfer hair to material hand and tie down
