Something I came up with while goofing around.....

Hook: 4XL size 8
Thread: 3/0 chartruese
Tail: Tuft of Yellow Glo Bug yarn
Rib: Fine oval gold tinsel
Body: Strand of Yellow Glo Bug yarn wrapped forward
Wing: Chartruese marabou
Head: Chartruese deer hair (spun, packed, and trimmed)

I used 3/0 thread to bite the deer hair better, and layered the thread base of the body with Zap a Gap prior to wrapping the yarn forward to prevent slippage.

With all the colors of Glo Bug yarn and deer hair, the color combos are numerous.
