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
