1. Begin thread behind the hook eye and wrap towards a point even with the hook barb.
2. Tie in a few pieces of red buck tail and foam. Secure foam with a few tight thread wraps leaving enough foam to cover the hook shank.
3. Tie in hackle and chenille and bring the thread roughly 2/3 up the shank.
4. Wind the chenille up the shank.
5. Wind the hackle up the shank in evenly spaced turns.
6. Fold the remainder of the foam down and secure.
7. Add the turkey quill (you should treat the quill with a little head cement or clear nail polish prior to adding it to the fly.
8. Add a clump of deer hair and spin the hair, adding more as needed, until the remaining third of the shank is covered. Trim to form leaving the tips to extend back over the body.
