1. Wind thread onto shank of hook to the bend.
Tie in a few strands of the speckled turkey tail, to form a small
Tie in 3 or 4 strands of peacock herl (depending on quality).
I prefer to make a rope out of the herl by making a loop of thread
and twisting herl and thread together.
Proceed to make a even thick body about 2/3's along shank of hook.
Tie in a piece of speckled turkey tail for a wing case at the spot where body
finishes, making sure that the wing is tied laying down along the
body. Wing case should extrude at least half the length of
hook shank, as in photo.
Tie in 2 or 3 black cock hackles.
Wind hackles onto hook, one at a time, as you want to achieve a nice
thick bushy effect.
Whip finish and apply small amount of head cement.
