Notional tying sequence, but looking at pics on the interweb it's not too hard to figure out; change colors to suit your needs.


hook - Dai Riki 300 #14
thread - MFC 6/0 purple
shuck - Congo Hair brown
rib - x-small wire silver
abdomen - holo tinsel purple
thorax - Ice Dub black peacock
head - dubbing Hare's Ear
underwing - deer hair
legs - medium rubber brown
wing - Congo Hair white
overwing - 1mm foam white


mash barb, start thread at 1/2 mark

pull wing to the rear, over the head and tie down

repeat with the foam

tie in legs (feel free to dub these wraps, as seen on tv; seems like a waste of time to me)

whip finish, SHHAN, trim legs, wing and overwing

Nice tutorial.  I've tied similar patterns, and none of them have floated.

 

I like how this one looks, so I might try it.
