Taking a lot of liberties with the original, mostly due to lack of proper materials.

thread - Danville 6/0 white
tag - oval tinsel gold
butt - mylar braid gold
rear hackle - yellow
wing - bucktail yellow, orange, black, Krystal Flash gold
body - Ice Dub golden brown
front hackle - hot orange, black
cheeks - sharptail grouse
head - Krystal Flash pearl


Regards,

Beautiful tie, lack of "proper materials' should never dissuade any tier from being creative!

Shrimp territory here, huh.
