**Hooks not included**
Recommended hooks: Gamakatsu R19-B #10 - #18, Umpqua U002 in a #8 - #20
Step by step instructions:
Step 1: Start by wrapping the thread back to the bend of the hook.
Step 2: Trim/pull off 2-8 faux bucktail fibers. Make sure they're all even.
Step 3: Tie them in out the back of the hook and trim off the rest of the fibers. Optional: Tie half on either side of the hook, making somewhat of a V.
Step 4: Trim off a strand of krystal flash and tie in out the back of the hook.
Step 5: Grab a pinch of super fine dry fly dubbing and spin around thread. Wrap forward about 2/3 up to the eye of the hook, adding more dubbing as necessary.
Step 6: Counter-wrap(opposite direction as your thread) the krystal flash over the dubbing, about 3-6 wraps. Tie off and trim the leftover flash.
Step 7: Find one feather in each color with almost the exact same dimensions, and pull off of the dry neck chunks.
Step 8: Tie in both feathers at the edge of the dubbing.
Step 9: Tightly palmer(wrap) both feathers around the hook all the way up to the eye.
Step 10: Tie off at the eye of the hook and trim the rest of the feather off.
Step 11: Whip finish, and you're done!
