OK John ... Here goes
tail: all tied in flatwing style...white bucktail under 2 barred white hackles under pearl flash under lt.green hackle under olive hackle
Belly: series of 3 reversed tied bucktail clumps. reverse tied to stand off w/ more depth.
wing: all tied in Tent style and at angle to hook shank. working forward.
clump of sparse white bucktail. "Tented" lt. green hackle ea. side of shank.
clump of sparse chart. bucktail. "Tented" lt. blue hackle ea. side of shank.
clump of sparse olive bucktail. "Tented" lt. olive hackle ea. side of shank.
olive flash
5 thin black hackles (from whiting 100 pack dry fly hackle)
Eyes: Jungle Cock or dome eyes
Run under warm water to get materials to memorize shape

key is finding long thin hackles in appropriate colors.... no easy task. (I'm always looking for sources and leads )

hope I explained it .... the tie is easier than it sounds
