Hare’s Ear #15 SBS
Posted 23 October 2018 - 04:53 AM
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
tie in wire loop; wax
insert dubbing in loop (keep it sparse so the wire shows thru), twist
wrap forward to 60% mark; tie off/trim
tie in a clump of pt
repeat dubbing loop sequence but with a bit more dubbing
wrap loop forward to 1 eye width from eye; tie off/trim
pull wing case forward; tie down

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.
