Easy
Instruction: 
  1. Fasten the thread behind the hook-eye and attach the eyes (by winding the thread around the bead chain). Secure with varnish or superglue.
  2. Cover the hook with thread, and tie in two strings of clear crystal flash almost same length as hook shaft right at the bend.
  3. Tie in a little red marabou as tail.
  4. Tie in a brown hackle and a string of cactuschenille (I use claret coloured) at the rear end of the hook.
  5. Wind the tying-thread to the hook-eye and cover the hook shank with the cactuschenille.
  6. Fasten the chenille just behind the eyes.
  7. Wind the hackle over the body and secure it just behind the eyes.
  8. Complete with a whip-finish knot and secure with varnish.
