Found a series of 50 variations here. Pre-made dubbing brushes would speed up the process.

underbody - non-tox .025

thread - Danville 6/0 brown

tail - partridge brown

abdomen - small wire gold/hare's ear dubbing brush

That'll work gooood!

I have to try this style sparse brush with silver or gold wire. It adds a hint of bling in the tail without over doing it.

Thanks Scott & Lost Coast.
