My apologies to Hans but this floats better and I can see it when the light goes off the water; dubbing loop allows use of poorer quality CdC, of which I have a sizable quantity. Also works as a small hopper (legs optional) or a Spruce Moth.

hook -Dai Riki 305 #14
thread - UTC 140 tan
abdomen - CdC tan
wing - deer hair bleached
overwing/head - 1mm foam tan
indicator - 1mm foam orange

mash barb, start thread at eye



tie in foam strip (gap width) at eye



wrap to bend, form a dubbing loop



grab tips of 3 CdC feathers; trim stems





insert clip in the loop; pull thread tight, slide off the loop and release from the clip, capturing CdC (adjust butts, as needed)





spin loop



moisten fingers, stroke fibers back and wrap body up to foam





give the CdC a good comb-out





clean, stack, measure (tips to bend) a clump of deer hair; trim butts



tie in with 2 soft loops; pull tight and let it flair





spread wing with thumbnail



pull foam back; tie down



tie in indicator; whip, SHHAN



trim overwing/indicator



trim out some of the CdC underneath (more will probably be removed later, using the fingernail pinch method)







Regards,
Scott
