Take a length of mylar tinsel or pearl film and secure to the top of the hookshank stopping part way round the bend. Return the thread to near the eye. Make sure that the body is uniform and all silver wire and tinsel has been covered with thread.
Carefully position the mylar tinsel so it runs on top of the hook, it may need adjusting after a few of the wire ribs are created. Wind the wire up the hookshank to create a rib, catching and securing the mylar tinsel on top of the hookshank. Continue to a position just short of the eye. Secure the wire with thread and trim waste wire by rocking it from side to side. Leave the mylar tinsel to be used as the thorax cover.
Bring the two goose biots and mylar tinsel forward and secure at the eye. Trim waste and cover the tinsel and biot ends with thread. Whip finish the thread, trim waste thread and varnish the head. (This pattern does not require any varnish on the body section).
