HOOK straight eye, 6x long
THREAD Black 6/0
HEAD Wet and Wild nail polish that has glitter in it
TAG red size "A" nylon
BODY Gold Mylar piping, small size. (Pick up some at a craft store after Christmas)
WING first lay on some yellow calf tail fibers, about 25, then an orange grizzly marabou plume. Next tie in 1 Crystal Flash strand and fold it so there is 4 fibers lying over the marabou. Then orange mallard flank feather and lay this over the marabou. After the hook is in the vise, start the "A" nylon 1/2-inch behind the eye. Wrap toward the tail position and then take some nail polish and coat the windings. Take the gold piping and measure it against the hook. Cut it and take the core out. Slide the pipe over the eye and down to the tail position where your thread is waiting. Hold the pipe with you left fingers and take 4 turns of thread with the bobbin. (I'm right handed). You should be able to let go of the pipe and make 2 whip finishes with your right hand.
