Tail: White Bucktail
Wing/Body: White Yak under and over, Polar Fiber Sides up front, Blue Yak Hair Top with about 6 strands Polar Flash mixed in
Topping: Peacock Herl
Gill: Red Milar Strip 1/8", finer red will do too
Eyes: Prizmatic stick on

In working with the Yak Hair, I'm told it's better to cut double the length you need then fold it in half and tie it in. This keeps material from pulling out.

Good Luck,
