Stuff you'll need...
Tie it up...
This one's pretty
easy, just be sure to start at the bend and try not to move too far forward.
- Hook: Mustad 34007 or equivalent size 2X
- Thread: Flourescent Red
- Wing: White Bucktail, over which is tied Pearl Crystal Flash, then White FisHair, then Purple
Ultra Hair, and topped by about 6 strands of Peacock hurl.
- Throat: Red Maribou.
- Eyes: Silver or Gold Bead Chain.
Place the hook
in the vise and attach the tying thread.
Starting at the
back of the bend, tie in a medium clump of unstacked Bucktail extending
about a shank and a half.
Tie in the Crystal
flash at the mid point and double it over so that it comes to just shy
of the Bucktail tips.
Tie in the FisHair,
then Ultra Hair keeping each layer just shy of the tips on the previous
one, throw in a few half-hitches to lock it all down.
Tie in the Marabou
Using a figure-of-eight
pattern, tie in the eyes, building a sharp bullet head. Throw in a few
half-hitches to lock it down.
Apply a whip finish,
and cut the tying thread.
Apply nail polish
or your favorite head cement.
