    Default Jacob's Coat SBS

    Alec Jackson was looking for something to do with his tying table scraps and came up with this; he has a lot more imagination than I do, and cooler scraps

    hook - Dai Riki 799 #6
    thread - Danville 6/0 fluoro orange
    tail - deer hair
    body - oval gold tinsel, peacock herl, ostrich herl various colors
    hackle - red and yellow, mixed

    Part 1

    mash barb, wrap thread back to hook point

    measure a clump of deer hair (hook gap) and tie in; smooth with thread wraps

    tie in tinsel

    take a peacock herl and mixture of ostrich herl; tie it in

    grab the herl and tinsel, twist into a rope (take a brush to the rope to release trapped fibers); wrap forward and tie off (repeat with the brush)
