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

hook Dai Riki 280 #10
underbody - non-tox .025
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
tail - partridge brown
abdomen - small wire gold/hare's ear dubbing brush
wing case - pheasant tail
thorax - same as abdomen (but a bit thicker)


wrap front 1/3 of shank with non-tox; tie in thread, wrap to bend

measure (gap width) a clump of partridge fibers; tie in/trim

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.
