Do the quill wing tips face up? down?, cross over each other? Can't ever remember (or get it right) so I cheated.


hook - Mustad 94840 #14
thread - Danville 6/0 black
rib - x-fine wire gold
abdomen - dubbing olive
body hackle - grizzly (undersize by 2)
underwing - mallard dyed wood duck
wing - hen dun (Wondewing style)
front hackle - brown

mash barb, start thread at 2/3 mark; tie in rib and wrap back to point above barb




dub thread, dub body






tie in grizzly hackle at front of body




wrap hackle to the back; capture tip with ribbing, continue ribbing to the front, helicopter and tie off (not the traditional method, but it works great for an EHC so why not? more durable, too)






trim hackle on top




measure a few mallard fibers (not quite gap width); tie in






prepare hen feather - strip fluff off stem, separate a few fibers then pull them back along bare stem






tie in by tips then adjust wing length by pulling straight back along body (if necessary); trim tips and smooth with thread wraps






tie in front hackle; wrap, half hitch x 2, SHHAN





dorsal



ventral




Regards,
Scott
