thread - Danville 6/0 brown
underbody - non-tox .015
rib - x-small wire gold
abdomen - Zelon dubbing hydropsyche
shuck/shellback - marabou brown
hackle - partridge
antennae - woodduck flank
head - dubbing brown


mash barb, wrap non-tox

start thread, tie in rib, wrap to bend

dub thread/dub abdomen to 2/3 mark (part 2 seems to have disappeared into the either)

Image


prep marabou tip; tie in at front of abdomen

Image

Image


pull marabou over back, capture tip with rib, continue up the abdomen, helicopter end, cover with thread; trim tips (gap width)

Can't go wrong with a Harrop pattern. Very nicely done, Scott.

Now that I could fish forever. That looks really good. It's a great pattern and a very nice job of sharing it.
