Found this on Frankie Mcphillips’ site; could work as a damsel.

hook - WFC Model 6 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 light olive
rib - small wire chartreuse
abdomen - medium tinsel pearl
wingcase - large tinsel pearl
thorax - FTD Starburst olive
hackle - olive

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

Strip some fibers off a marabou plume (pinch/rip allows you to turn real crap into something useable)

Grab them by their base and twist between your fingers; then grasp them towards the tips, pinch and tear, hopefully ending up with a clean separation

Measure (shank length); tie in/trim, cover with thread (waxing helps cut down on the fluff)
