1. Wind the thread in touching turns to the bend of the hook.
2. Tie in a tail of hackle fibres equal in length to about 2/3
of the length of the hook shank.
3. Select a small bunch of deer hair and after stacking, tie
it in at the 2/3 point with the tips pointing a distance of about
2/3 of the length of the hook shank over the front of the hook
4. Return the thread to the bend of the hook tying in a
length of oval tinsel as you go. Tinsel is preferred rather than
wire because the extra weight of the wire may sink the fly.
5. Dub on a thin body all the way to the 2/3 point.
Pick up the tinsel and wind it along the body of the fly forming 4
or 5 segments.
7. Tie off the tinsel and trim the loose end.
Tie in two peacock herls at the 2/3 point.
