Thank you Jim!

These are the steps I use to tie this fly on the A.J. #1.5 blind eye hook:

1. Tip 10 turns of XS oval tinsel or small Ultra-wire starting just above hook point.

2. Tail left and right Peacock Sword fibers (3 each)

3. Rear Body large Holo tinsel (double wrapped) with medium oval rib

4. Rear Wing sparse amount of yellow calftail with yellow GP rump feather tied in flat over the top. Wing should extend back almost to end of tail.

5. Hackle long fibered pheasant rump feather (ok to use 2 feathers)

6. Front Body wool yarn roughed up with Velcro tool and a medium Holo tinsel rib

7. Middle Wing- sparse amount of rust calftail & a little Angel hair, with a reddish GP feather tied in flat over the top. Wing should extend back almost to the end of the yellow wing.

8. Hackle long fibered pheasant rump feather (ok to use 2 feathers) with a few turns of legal Heron in front

9. Collar a few turns of Guinea feather or other long fibered feather pulled down as a throat

10. Front Wing 2 pheasant rump feathers tied in flat over the top. Wing should extend back almost to the end of the red wing.
