A few changes from the original; used rat brown ostrich for the body instead of dubbing and added a tag.

hook - Dai Riki 899 #4
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tag - tinsel gold
tail - bucktail red
rib - small wire gold
body - ostrich grey/brown
body hackle - cree
wing - bucktail red/fox squirrel tail
front hackle - black



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






measure (shank length) a small clump of bucktail; tie in






tie in rib




tie in some ostrich herl by the tips; wrap to return wire, tie off/trim






tie in hackle; wrap to tail






capture tip of hackle with rib, continue to front, helicopter end, cover with thread, trim hackle tip




measure (tips to bend) another sparse clump of bucktail; tie in/trim






repeat with squirrel tail






tie in (folded) hackle by tip




wrap hackle, tie off/trim, whip finish, SHHAN








Regards,
Scott

Love this pattern, extremely buggy! I'm tying them up on Alex Jackson 5s for steel and 7s for steelhead and trout. I've already had great success with it in Boulder gardens where big bugs were hatching. Thanks for sharing scott
