thread - UTC 140 cream
tail - deer hair bleached
body - dubbing cream
head/wing - deer hair bleached
hackle - barred cream



Mash barb start thread at 2/3 mark; wrap to bend




Clean, stack, measure (gap width) a clump of deer hair; tie in, wrap to 2/3 mark






Clean, stack, measure (hook eye to tail) another clump of deer hair; trim to length/tie in








Dub thread/dub body; finish at 2/3 mark






Pull hair back; tie down






Tie in hackle




Wrap hackle, tie off/trim half hitch x 2




Trim out hackle underneath








Regards,
Scott
