Used teal as a nod to the original; couldn't get it to lay properly so may revisit that choice.

hook - Mustad 79580 #6
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - golden pheasant tippets
rib - small wire silver
abdomen - large tinsel silver
body hackle - grizzly
thorax - Arizona Simi Seal red
wing - teal flank
collar - hen black

mash barb, start thread at 2/3 mark, wrap to bend

prep gp, measure (gap width past bend, tie in

tie in rib, move to 2/3 mark and tie in tinsel

wrap tinsel to tail and back; tie off/trim

tie in hackle; wrap to tail

capture tip of hackle with rib, continue thru, helicopter end, cover with thread; trim hackle tip

create dubbing loop

wax loop, insert dubbing, spin

wrap thorax, stroking fibers back with each turn; stop about 1 eye width back from eye

tie in (folded) teal by tip, stroke fibers back while wrapping; tie off/trim

tie in hen by tip

wrap, tie off/trim, whip finish, SHHAN

Very cool tie Scott,

I caught my first 'big' (9") trout on a more traditional tie of the Peter Ross, a lot less complex tie than this but thanks for reminding me of a great moment. Amazing art as always.

I am tempted to create a group of learners/duffers like me to show their SBS outcomes, the yin to your yang. It would be fun to see how folks follow your steps, mine would be towards the back of the class.
