    Tying instructions from Derek:

    Tag: flat silver tinsel
    Tail: golden pheasant crest with tippet
    Butt: black ostrich herl
    Body: rear half - yellow-orange mohair dubbing or yarn with oval silver tinsel; front half - black silk with flat silver tinsel; black ostrich joint between the two
    Body Hackle: yellow saddle over orange, black heron substitute over silk
    Throat: teal with a pair of jungle cock feathers
    Wing: cinnamon turkey or any white turkey substitute, set low, and apart.

    Comments: The cinnamon version is the original and the one I usually fish, but the white version is more common now due to the cost and scarcity of cinnamon turkey.
