For chubby chasers, a changeup to all those skinny little damsels.



hook - TMC 5263 #6
thread - UTC 140 brown olive
eyes - plastic dumbell black
tail - marabou brown olive
underbody - non-toxic wire .025
body - dubbing mix angora brown olive/Simi Seal olive spectrum
rib - copper wire fine
legs - pheasant rump (dyed olive)
wing case - turkey tail
head - same as body


mash barb, attach thread




measure a clump of marabou for length (hook gap) and tie in








since you forgot to tie in the eyes first, do it now and act like nothing ever happened (not that it really matters)




wrap shank with non-tox




mash it in the horizontal orientation, brush with Super Glue






cover with thread wraps to smooth out body and tie in ribbing




dub a plus-sized body






rib body, helicopter and tie off; add a little more dubbing up front






cut out center stem from a pheasant rump feather, measure for length (extend back to the hook point) and tie in on top of the hook, spreading fibers on either side; trim butts










prep a section of turkey tail (gap width); fold and trim at an angle








tie in




trim butts and dub head (between eyes, too); half hitch x 2, SHHAN




dorsal




ventral




Regards,
Scott
