Recipe: Hook: TMC 2488 #16-24 Thread: Lagartun 74 Denier White and 8/0 Black Abdomen: Superhair, two strands olive and one strand black Wingcase: White Flouro Fiber Thorax: Black 8/0 tying thread Wing Buds: Leftover butts of wingcase
Start the white thread just behind the ye and tie in all three strands of Superhair.
Wrap back over the Superhair to the bend, then return the thread to the starting point.
Wrap all three strands of Superhair forward to the starting point creating the ribbed abdomen.
Clip the excess Superhair and whip finish the white thread.
Start the black thread over the front end of the abdomen.
Tie in a dozen strands of flouro fiber at the front edge of the abdomen. Build a smooth thread ball for the thorax with the black thread.
Pull the Flouro fiber forward over the thread thorax and tie it down behind the hook eye.
Divide the butts of the Flouro fiber into two even bunches. Pull one half back on the near side of the hook and bind it in place behind the eye. Pull the other half back along the far side and bind it in place as well.
Build a smooth thread head over the butt ends and whip finish the thread.
Clip the flouro Fiber butts so they are just a bit longer than the wingcase.
