Davie McPhail has a great vid; for some reason (5 yr old OS?), mine keeps dropping out halfway thru so this is for my sanity as much as anything. A neat, easy sunken beetle; this would be fun to swing past some cut-banks.

hook - Mustad 3906 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black
rib - oval tinsel silver
shellback - peacock sword
body - rug yarn dubbing black (original calls for seal)
wing - Amherst pheasant tippet
hackle - hen black


mash barb, start thread, tie in rib, wrap to bend

Image


tie in some peacock sword fibers by the tips

Image


dub thread/dub body

Image

Image


rib body; tie off/trim

Image


pull shellback forward; tie off/trim

Image


strip off some AP tippet fibers; measure (tips to bend), tie in/trim

Image

Image


tie in folded hackle (this was a saddle; turned out to be too heavy so I swapped in a cape feather)

Image


wrap; tie off/trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN

Such a lovely color combination. Striking!

Great name too.

Thanks for taking the time to share another excellent SBS. ;)

I like it, too. In smaller sizes, it might look good with a jungle cock eye for the wing, as well. Good way to use up the big ones.
