Time for some Hemipterics. Saw a pic on a Kiwi site; took a wag at the sequence.

hook - Mustad 94840 #8
thread - UTC 140 tan
abdomen - caribou spun/clipped
head - 2mm foam tan
eye - foam cylinder
legs - medium rubber brown
indicator - Congo Hair white
hackle - ginger/grizzly

Part 1

mash barb, start thread at the back end

clean a clump of caribou, trim tips; 2 soft loops, let it spin, then pack it


and again; tie off thread and trim

flip it, lay a razor blade on the eye (to establish the underside) and push straight back

trim to shape

re-start thread, tie in a foam strip (a little more than gap width) facing back
