    This is just your everyday poorly wrapped copper john with some rubber legs. tie it better than I did, and it might look good too...

    Hook - curved pupa hook.
    thread - black
    1. Tie in biots for tail
    2. Tie in and wrap red wire forward about 2/3 the way up.
    3. Tie in mylar for the wing back. Tie in peacock herl and wrap forward, tie off.
    4. wind back through herl and tie in legs. ( I have noticed this doesnt look to obvious, is easier than tying part of the peacock, then legs, then more peacock, and seems to make the herl a bit more durable...You may have a better way to do it. If so let us know.)
    5. Pull mylar over thorax and tie off behind bead. Clip closer than I did.
    6. Go fish.
    7. Buy me a portable light with a magnifyer so I dont send out poorly tied flies... they fish but they aint pretty to look at.
