    Another Brooks Blonde variation from Michigan tyer Dick Smith. As with his other streamer, he preferred to tie them unweighted.

    hook - Dai Riki 700 #4
    thread - UTC 140 black
    tail - bucktail white
    body - Plastic Canvas yarn silver
    throat - Flashabou silver
    wing - squirrel tail

    mash barb, start thread, wrap to bend

    even tips on a clump of bucktail, measure (hook length), tie in/trim
