Very nice baitfish pattern - sardina for tunas in Mexico for sure! What's the body material? My initial reaction was peanut bunker

John, the tail is 1. feather stripe to the vain , an leave some on the end. then cut a ( V ) in the feather for the tail. tie the vain in the hook leaving it extend past the end fo it is FREE to move BUT I noticed I need stronger feather to cut the V into maby cock schlepin will be better. thats it.
"GOOD LUCK GOOD TYIN"
