Natural version (for all the foam haters out there)

hook - Tiemco 5212
thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
tail/back - deer hair
body - deer hair orange
hackle (body) - ginger
hackle (front) - brown

Part 1

mash barb, attach thread at back end and wrap back to point above barb (leave tag end long)

clean a clump of deer hair (no need to stack, trim to length)

2 soft loops then allow to spin; pack it tight with fingernails


and again

flip it over on it's back, lay a razor blade on hook eye and push straight back

have at it with your favorite cutting implements; taper body (looks like I came up a bit chubby on this one)

tie in body hackle, wrap to the back and tie off with tag end of thread (not sure if this is the best way; may start at the back next time and go forward)
