Change color/size to suit your needs; on anything smaller, I'd switch to 1mm foam.

 

hook - Dai Riki 280 #8

thread - UTC 140 woodduck

body - Ice Dub pheasant tail

shellback/underwing - 2mm foam gold

legs - medium rubber cornsnake

head/wing - elk hair

indicator - 1mm foam orange

 

 

mash barb, cover front 1/4 of shank with thread

clean, stack, measure (hook length) a clump of elk

trim butts, tie in with 2 soft loops, pull tight and let it spin
