Sparkle and Orange Soft Hackle

Well spring is a little over two weeks away so here's the soft hackle I'vebeen tinkering with. I found some translucent pearl tinsel that I thought would look great in a sparkle soft hackle.

thread- orange 8/0
body- orange floss covered in small pearl tinsel
rib- copper wire
thorax- light cahill dubbing blended with orange highlight dubbing and a gold bead
hackle- rooster ringneck pheasant
