Prepare some ginger marabou and catch in, secure along the hookshank with thread. I usually make the marabou tail slightly longer than the hook shank length.
TIP: When preparing the marabou, place the marabou tips in your left hand between index finger and thumb and with the right hand move your thumb and index finger nails down the marabou stripping the webby marabou bulk off the stems. This will result in a slimmer body when tied in. (See the Techniques section for more detailed information)
Perform two wraps of thread around the hackle fibre stems and let the bobbin hang loose. Now adjust the hackle fibres until you are happy with their position, then take the bobbin again keeping the thread taught and secure the hackle fibres in with thread. Trim any waste ends that are protruding.
Catch in a Sunburst Goose biot to each side of the head. The length is up to you, the one pictured is around 3/4 the length of the body. Make sure each goose biot lays horizontally down the centre of the body.
