Lance Egan's mash-up of a Skip Nymph/Red-Headed Stepchild; good tailwater stuff. The pt wingcase on anything smaller than a #16 is superfluous and a PITA.

hook - Dai Riki 135 #18
thread - Danville 6/0 red
bead - 3/32 gold
underbody - non-tox .015
rib - small wire red
tail/shellback - pheasant tail
abdomen - tying thread
wingcase - pheasant tail (see note)/medium mylar opal
thorax - Arizona Dubbing pheasant tail
legs - Krystal Flash red

mash barb, slide on bead; jam in place with a few wraps of .015 non-tox



start thread, tie in rib, wrap to bend



measure (gap width) some pt fibers; tie in at 2/3 mark





hold tail fibers against the body and rib abdomen; helicopter end, cover with thread



tie in tinsel; fold pt butts back





dub thread/dub thorax





pull pt forward; tie off/trim





tie in KF on either side



pull tinsel forward; tie off, whip finish, SHHAN



trim tinsel (left the tag end long as a nod to Hogan Brown) and KF







Regards,
Scott

Steve,

No; the bead is poorly drilled, barely tapered. I checked the rest of the batch it came from and they're all like that; they were cheap, and that's the reason why.

Question - why do you bold/italicize your text?

Scott
When I started dealing baseball cards on the interweb I started doing it for sh*ts & giggles and I have been doing it for about 5 years now .
