|1. Apply a thread base on hook shank and wrap to the bend of the hook.. |
|2. Apply the fine dubbing to the thread by twisting the material around the thread. Anchor a few fibers to the the shank with 1-2 wraps. This will allow you to twist the material to a firmer noodle. |
|3. From the hook bend, wrap a dubbing body to the 50% position with a reverse taper. A reverse taper will keep the hair wing from being forced up. |
4. Tie in a patch of Blond Elk Hair or bleached deer body hair so that the hair extends about 1/2 the hook gap. Trim the butts on a slant and cover with thread wraps.|
5. Attach one Ginger Hackle in front of the wing base. |
6. Wrap the hackle to one eyelength behind the eye. Tie off and finish with head. Whip finish. |
