Pretty basic stuff here; change color/size to suit your needs.

hook -Dai Riki 280 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black
abdomen - dubbing olive
legs/wingcase - pheasant rump dyed olive
thorax/head - peacock herl


mash barb, start thread at 50% mark, wrap to bend




dub thread/dub abdomen






invert hook, move thread to 1 eye width back from eye, strip some fibers from a pheasant rump feather, measure (tips from tie in to point), tie in facing forward






doesn't look quite right so added a bit more dubbing to extend abdomen




tie in another pheasant rump feather (a bit more durable that pheasant tail fibers) by tips




tie in some peacock herl; twist around thread, wrap to legs








pull legs back, tie down






pull shellback forward; tie down/trim






tie in a couple more peacock herls; twist around thread






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