Another way to skin Mr. Quigley’s cat. Notional sequence, tied as a generic here; change color/size to suit your needs.

hook - Dai Riki 300 #12
thread - UTC 140 rusty brown
rib - x-small wire copper
tail/abdomen- pheasant tail
shellback/shuck - Congo Hair brown
thorax - Ice Dub pheasant tail
wing - Deer hair
hackle - grizzly/brown


Mash barb/start thread; tie in rib, wrap to bend




Measure (gap width past bend) some pt fibers; tie in






Tie in CH facing forward over eye to 2/3 mark




Wrap pt forward to 2/3 mark; tie off/trim




Fold CH back, capture with wire rib, continue rib forward; tie down, helicopter end, cover with thread, trim shuck






Dub thread/dub thorax to 3/4 mark






Clean, stack, measure (hook length) a clump of deer hair; tie in/trim butts even with thorax






Tie in hackles





Wrap, tie off/trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN




Trim out hackle underneath








Regards,
Scott

The first Quigley I saw only used shuck material for the “tail”. Tied it that way for more than 20 years and it works fine.

Scott,Both variations look awesome to me and it is obvious you know what you are doing. It is equally obvious that those others commenting know how to type.

Thanks again for sharing your skills

I like to use a few, very few fibers of teal wrapped in antron in my emergers. I love to fish spring creeks and places like The Ranch. Does it make a difference? Who knows....
