Tying Instructions: tie in tail then rib. dub about 1/3 of the hook and wrap rib and tie it off. tie in ostrich herl and add some more dubbing. (I twist the ostrich herl together the wrap it around my thread) palmer herl forward and tie off. add more dubbing and place a piece of turkey tail over top for 1st wing case. tie in another piece of turkey, dub rest of hook and pull turkey forward whip finish. I rarely add legs to my nymphs I just brush out the dubbing but you could add legs if liked (I'm lazy)
