    Betty Hoyt's variation on the Sofa Pillow; neat attractor.


    hook - Tiemco 5212
    thread - UTC 140 tan
    Tail - deer har
    body - poly yarn yellow
    rib - saddle hackle (clipped) ginger
    wing - deer hair
    head - deer hair spun/clipped


    Mash down barb and start thread at 60% point on shank

    [​IMG]



    clean/stack a clump of deer hair; tail should extend length of hook gap

    [​IMG]



    tie in and wrap hair back to tie-in; clip excess and return to tail

    [​IMG]



    tie in hackle (don't worry about hackle length since it's going to be trimmed later)

    [​IMG]



    tie in poly yarn and wrap back to initial tie-in

    [​IMG]



    wrap yarn forward, tie off and clip

    [​IMG]



    wrap hackle forward (evenly spaced) and tie off

    [​IMG]




    clip hackle shorter than hook gap

    [​IMG]



    clean/stack another clump of deer hair and tie in wing

    [​IMG]




    clean another clump of deer hair and cut tips (don't stack, you want the thicker fibers for the spun head); move thread in front of wing and make 2 soft loops over clump, slowly apply thread pressure and allow hair to spin

    [​IMG]



    push 1st clump back with fingernails/packer and repeat; tie off and add Sally

    [​IMG]



    invert, lay double-edge razor on hook eye and push straight back

    [​IMG]



    flip back over and use razor for angle cut on top of head

    [​IMG]



    clean up head shape (some folks are good enough with the blade for this app, I need my scissors) and you're done. Next time, I think I'll stop the body at the 50% mark so I can get more jug in the head; want that Barry Bonds/Jason Giambi PED look

    change body/hackle colors as you see fit
