BLACK GHOST MATUKA

Not sure about keeping the beard with the collar, may be a bit too much, may work well by filling out the profile.  Thought's anyone?

Second matuka style I've tied.  Getting the ribbing even while at the same time splitting the hackle without trapping any fibers will need a bit more practice.

hook - WFC Model 6 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 rust 
tail - yarn gold
rib - small wire gold
body - hare’s ear bleached
body hackle - dyed ginger (1/4 Tsp Rit Tan, 1/8 Tsp Rit Golden Yellow/4 cups water)
1st shoulder - golden pheasant body red 
2nd shoulder - hen pheasant body feather

Got the hackle color I was looking for by trying different times in the dye bath; this one was in for about 90 seconds.  Longer and it takes on more of an orangish tinge.
