Notional tying sequence, came out something like the original with a few changes; swapped out the calftail overwing for synthetic because that stuff is a pain to fold properly and I hate having to judge the length to get it to match the wing properly. Tied in these colors for stupid cutts; change to suit your needs.


hook - Dai Riki 300 #8
thread - UTC 140 Fluoro Orange
tail - deer hair bleached
rib - x-small wire copper
body - 1mm foam orange
body hackle - grizzly dyed orange (1 Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange/1 cup water; undersize by 2)
wing - deer hair bleached
legs - medium rubber brown
head - 1mm foam orange
overwing - Congo Hair white
