    He used pheasant tail for the wing; mine came out looking pre-chewed so I switched to rump feather.

    hook - Mustad 3906 #8
    thread - Danville 6/0 black
    tag - gold tinsel
    tail - hen brown
    body - peacock herl with green floss center
    hackle - hen brown
    wing - pheasant rump dyed brown


    mash barb, start thread, wrap to bend; tie in tinsel, wrap to barb and back, tie off/trim
