A little bit more involved than Kaufmann's but not much.

hook - Dai Riki 270 #10
thread - MFC 8/0 light olive
tail - marabou olive
body - marabou olive
rib - copper wire x-fine
legs/wing case - marabou olive
eyes - 25lb Amnesia/green glass beads



mash barb, attach thread




the eyes have it






tie in ribbing and wrap back to hook barb




measure marabou (hook gap length past bend) and tie in






wrap butt ends forward, forming body




wrap rib




assume the ventral position; measure another marabou feather for length and tie in






rightside up, pull marabou butts over top, tie down behind eyes; half hitch x2, SHHAN, trim wing case






Regards,
Scott
