Mikulak, Sedgehog, whatever; there's a reason they make pool toys out of foam instead of dubbing. Change color/size to suit your fancy.


hook - Dai Riki 280 #8
thread - UTC 140 hot orange
tail/wing(s) - deer hair
body/head - 1mm foam orange
hackle - brown


mash barb/start thread; wrap to bend




clean, stack, measure (gap width) a clump of deer hair; tie in, move thread to 3/4 mark, tie down/trim butts






return to tail




tie in foam strip (approx 1/3 gap width)




brush underbody with a little Super Glue and wrap to point




clean, stack, measure (tips to tail) another clump of deer hair; trim butts/tie in






brush on a little more glue, wrap body to 1/2 mark




repeat winging sequence






a little more glue, wrap body to 3/4 mark; tie off/trim




last wing




tie in foam strip at eye; fold to create head, tie down/trim







tie in hackle; wrap, tie off/trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN






trim out hackle underneath








Regards,
Scott
