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






trim hair butts, cover with thread wraps and tie in front hackle




wrap hackle, tie off and trim




pull deer hair back and tie down






half hitch x 2, SHHAN front and back and you're done




Regards,
Scott
