Tying Instructions: Tied in the usualy way I do a spinner - as described on other patterns. This time though, the tail-splitting floss is not bound down and dubbed and ribbed as usualy - but becomes the top of the abdomen.

I haven't done this for the colour so much as the redction of thread wraps, and therefore, bulk.
Presentation Tips: Upstream with no hint of drag ;)
