Start by catching the tying thread onto the hookshank.
Catch in a bunch of Black cock hackle fibres, secure to the hook shank and trim waste, Try and keep the thread as uniform as possible.
Catch in a length of fine silver oval tinsel. Try and keep the tinsel on the underside of the hookshank when tying it in.
At the position opposite the barb, start to dub some seals fur onto the thread. Try small amounts, if it doesn't cover the hookshank enough then you perform another winding over the top.
Wind the seals fur up the hookshank and secure the thread a little way off the eye. Use a dubbing needle or piece of velcro to pull some of the seals fur fibres out which causes a nice buggy effect on the body.
Wind the oval silver tinsel up the hookshank in open turns and secure at the eye. Trim any waste.
See the pinch and loop method for winging the fly. This is available from the main menu under techniques. After the wing has been tied in catch in a black cock hackle.
Wind the hackle 2 or 3 times and secure at the eye. Trim any waste hackle, whip finish and create a neat head. Finally varnish the head.
