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
