body - Estaz olive
underwing - bucktail white
flash - Krystal Flash rootbeer
overwing - bucktail olive
topping - peacock herl

mash barb, grasp hook behind eye and bend hook down




start thread; tie in eyes, wrap to bend




tie in Estaz, wrap to eyes; tie off/trim






even tips on a sparse clump of bucktail, measure (2x shank), trim butts, tie in







tie in some KF; realize it's time to flip the hook in the vise so the stem is out of the way, fold, tie down






even tips on another sparse clump of bucktail, measure (a bit longer than the underwing), trim butts/tie in






tie in some peacock herl




tie in weedguard




whip finish, SHHAN, trim weedguard
