    Subbed biot for condor quill used in the original; notional tying sequence.

    hook - Mustad 3906 #10
    thread - Danville 6/0 black
    tag - tinsel silver
    body - biot dark grey
    rib - x-small wire silver
    hackle - grizzly hen
    wing - turkey quill


    mash barb, start thread, wrap to point

    [​IMG]


    tie in tinsel;, wrap down bend to barb and back; tie off/trim

    tie in moistened biot, notch side down

    [​IMG]


    wrap thread to 1/2 point, tie in rib

    [​IMG]


    wrap biot forward; tie off/trim

    [​IMG]


    tie in hackle, palmer back to 1/2 point; capture tip with wire, continue rib thru hackle, helicopter end, cover with thread

    stroke hackle fibers down with moistened fingers

    prep paired turkey quill segments (not quite gap width)

    [​IMG]


    measure (tips just past bend), fold, tie down with pinch wrap (waxing the thread helps alleviate thread torque, keeping the wing on top, although I did go thru 3 pairs to get this one right)

    There'll be a few of those going into a box next to some soft hackles. Sweet!
    Thanks
