A few minor changes to the original. Tied here as a PMD; the synth wing is much more manageable in smaller sizes like this. Just playing around with some ideas; this probably won't be the last iteration.


hook - WFC Model 3 #16
thread - MFC 8/0 cream
tail - pheasant tail
shuck - sparkle yarn brown
rib - x-small wire copper
abdomen - pheasant tail
wing/wingpad - Congo Hair baitfish tan
thorax - dubbing pale yellow
hackle - ginger

mash barb, start thread, tie in rib, wrap to bend

strip some pt fibers, measure (gap width), tie in
