I started tying this fly and the power went out so it is tied with cats eyes on my hat. (cats eyes are a small head lamp that clips on your hat)
attach thread just before hook point, wind rearward and tie on tag make a few wraps and tie off tinsel on the bottom of the shank. advance thread forward to the eye and add body material wrap body back to just before tinsel, looked good to me in the half light, and back. add tinsel under wing and throat. add wing and chheks. add bands of unistretch at head and make a thread head and add black head cement to the white thread only.
when dry sally hansen the whole head.
