STEP 1 : Catch in a length of thin silver wire and some mylar tinsel and continue down with the thread to a position opposite the hook point covering the wire and tinsel as you go.
STEP 2 : Create a bit of thickness to the body by running the thread back and forth along the hookshank (Keep the body uniform)..
STEP 3 : Wind the mylar tinsel up and down the lenght of the hookshank 3 times finishing at the eye. Secure the tinsel with thread and trim waste.
STEP 4 : Wind the wire 2 or 3 times around the hookshank to anchor the wire.
STEP 5 : Cut a minkie strip around 3 times the length of the hookshank (Can be shorter if you wish). Roughly measure a distance the length of the mylar body and part the fur. Now wind the wire around the hookshank catching in the minkie fur, 2 turns will be enough. Now stroke the fur backwards so the wire is covered.
STEP 6 : Continue winding the wire up the hookshank creating a rib. Make sure that you stroke the minkie fur to create a gap in which to attach the wire.
STEP 7 : Now take the hook out of the vice and insert it back in upside down. Take a bunch of Hot Orange Cock Hackle Fibres and tie them in as an underwing. The length of the fibres should be roughly the same length of the mylar body.
STEP 8 : Finally take the remaining tip of the minkie fur and tie in at the head. Its usually best to taper the fur (Point) so it creates a uniform head. Create a neat head, whip finish and varnish.
