Hook: Daiichi 2546, size 1/0
Thread: monofilament
Body: Unique Hair, light brown and off-white
Flash: Flashabou Mirage
Eyes: 5mm prismatic

Wrap tying thread from eye to hook bend. Attach tapered bunch of brown unique hair (bundle size of a pencil) to top of hook at the bend. Attach a similar bundle of white unique hair to bottom. On top, in front of tail, attach in the middle a clump of 15 brown unique hair about two inches in length. Fold back front and advance thread. Tie-in a similar bundle of white unique on the bottom and advance the thread. Continue alternating top to bottom bundles of hair to just behind hook eye.

Place one piece of flashabou parallel to hook shank for a lateral line of flash on each side. Whip finish head. Attach eyes with a drop of Zap-a-Gap. Coat eyes and head with several coats of Soft Body. Trim top and bottom to deep silhouette of a bunker.
