body - 1mm foam
shellback - 2mm foam rust
head/wing - deer hair
legs - medium rubber brown
indicator - 1mm foam orange


Mash barb, start thread at head





Clean, stack, measure (hook length + gap) a clump of deer hair; trim butts, tie in with 2 soft loops, spin, trim butts









Tie in 2mm foam strip (3/4 gap width), wrap to bend





Tie in 1mm foam strip; wrap to head, tie off/trim







Brush top of body with Super Glue, pull shellback forward; tie down/trim





Push deer hair back, evenly distributing around shank





Pull deer hair back, tie down with 2 soft loops, pull tight
