This is the last of the bucktails for now.

Hook: #2-10 3XL- 1XH, Orvis #1526 size 6, used here.
Thread: black 6/0
Body & Rib: Silver 2 stranded metallic floss, tied in at the eye and wound flat back to the bend then twist the 2 strands into 1 tight strand and wind back to the eye.
Wing: yellow bucktail topped by red bucktail then topped by yellow bucktail. Equal amounts of red & yellow bucktail are used for the under wings while the top wing has ~ 1 1/2 to 2 times the amount of bucktail used for the yellow underwing.
