Tying Instructions: Slip on bead then start thread. Wrap back and tie in your tail. Then tie in your wire rib along the hooks shank but do NOT shove it in your bead. Then tie in mylar making sure the whole body is smooth and consistent. Then wrap mylar, tie off. Then wrap wire rib to the front, take some extra turns (the heavier gauge wire will add some weight) and tie off. Re-tie on your mylar for the thorax cover and dub a thorax of your dubbing. Pull the wing-case over and tie off/snip. Then half hitch and switch to your bright green thread, make a small collar then whip finish with optional glue.
