Similar to the Michigan-body style but a bit simpler.

hook - WFC Model 6 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
tail - deer hair
rib - tying thread
body/thorax - deer hair
shoulder - hen grizzly
head/collar - deer hair

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

Clean, stack, measure (gap width past bend) a clump of deer hair

Tie in with 2 soft loops on top of shank, pull tight, maintain pinch to keep hair from spinning; take a few wraps through butts, locking hair in place

Return thread to 2/3 mark, pull butts forward and tie down

I tied a bunch of these in different colors. I could never get the thread to look good on the side away from me, so I am mostly using Veevus body braid. The olive is what most of them look like. I finally started using a larger hunk of hair in the front and it spins better. The black is the result. 6E5DC099-0FFD-4943-8B80-375F7BD7C03D.jpeg 4298359D-9AE5-49E4-9E00-43D8BEDD844C.jpeg
