A few changes to a standard Spundun, more in the position of the deer hair further back on the shank to allow for the hackle. The hackle also makes it easier to set the deer hair wing in place than a thread dam, and it looks pretty neat.

hook - Dai Riki 300 #10
thread - Uni 6/0 camel
shuck - Congo Hair white
body - medium tinsel opal
collar/thorax - deer hair
shoulder - hen grizzly/brown


Start thread at 2/3 mark
