This one borrowed some genetic code from the Skip Nymph. Quick & dirty version, using butts from tail/shellback for legs.

hook - Dai Riki 060 #14
thread - Danville 6/0 tan
underbody - non-tox .020
rib - x-small wire gold
tail/shellback - pheasant tail
abdomen/thorax - dubbing tan
wingcase - tinsel silver
legs - pheasant tail butts

mash barb; cover front 1/3 with non-tox



start thread, tie in rib, wrap to bend



dub thread/dub abdomen to 2/3 mark





measure (gap width past bend) some PT fibers; tie in (don't trim butts)





rib abdomen; helicopter end, cover with thread





tie in tinsel



dub thorax





pull tinsel forward; tie off/trim



divide PT butts, fold back/tie down, whip finish, SHHAN





trim butts







Regards,
Scott
