Making the original suitable for rougher water. Calftail wing would be more traditional but I was looking to keep the tie-down area slimmer.


hook Dai Riki 125 #10
thread - MFC 8/0 brown
tail - moose body hair
abdomen - peacock herl/Uni-Stretch red
wing - deer hair white
hackle - brown


Mash barb, start thread one eye width from eye

Clean, stack,measure (hook length) a clump of deer hair; trim, tie in with 2 soft loops (spin bobbin to tighten up the thread first), pull tight, keeping hair on top with pinch, set angle with wraps in front, then wrap to bend
