    More Russian goodness. Pretty basic construction with the exception of the hackle head/legs, which makes for a neat effect. Colors here based on what was in reach on my desk; change as you see fit.


    hook – Dai Riki 135 #12
    thread - MFC 8/0 light brown
    hot spot - dubbing hot orange/pink
    abdomen - deer hair
    shellback - 2mm foam brown
    legs/head - hackle ginger (oversize by 1)


    mash barb, start thread at 3/4 mark; wrap to bend

    taper foam strip (gap width); brush shank with Super Glue and tie in

    create dubbing loop; give it a dose of wax

    clean, trim tips from a clump of deer hair; insert in clip, transfer to loop, release from clip, spin

    Could almost use it as a snail pattern off of a full sinking line.
