Notional tying sequence. The original’s wing is a single strand of poly yarn tied on in front of the post; I was curious about the winging technique Kelly Galloup used on his Bobby Spinner, tying it in on the side of the hook, so I tried it here.

hook - WFC Model 3 #14
thread - MFC 8/0 sand
tail - hackle grizzly
body - biot callibaetis
wing - Congo Hair white
post - Parapost hot orange
thorax - Superfine dubbing callibaetis
hackle - grizzly

Start thread at 3/4 mark, wrap to bend

Strip off some hackle fibers, stack, measure (shank length); tie in
