Catch the thread onto the hookshank.
Take a bunch of Red Wool and secure along the hookshank. Stop winding the thread at a position opposite the barb.
Catch in a Brown Cock Hackle. (The barbs should be slightly longer than the hook gape).
Catch in two peacock herls from the eye of a peacock feather and return the thread up near the eye of the hook.
Wind the peacock herls up towards the eye of the hook. Be careful not to cross the herls when winding. About 1/3 of the hookshank from the eye, secure the herls with thread and trim any waste.
Wind the hackle up the hookshank in a palmered fashion and secure with thread at the same position that the peacock herl was finished.
Take a brown cock hackle and catch in where the peacock herls finished. TIP: If you need the fly to sit lower in the water, it is very easy to trim the hackle under the fly.
Wind the hackle up to the eye. The number of winds of hackle, depends on how bushy the hackle will be. Secure the hackle with thread and trim any waste hackle.
Take hold of the head hackle with your left hand and brush it back until only the thread is exposed. Create a neat head with the thread, whip finish and varnish the head.
