mount your bead chain eyes securely to the top of the shank about a hook eye length behind the eye. end with your thread in line with the hook barb.
clip a medium size bunch of finn raccon from the hide. the guard hairs will be fairly long but it's very simple to tease them out and then realign the tips with the rest of the fur.
i keep the guard hairs on the bottom of the clump. the color variation they offer will show up when the fly is riding hook up in the water. clip the butt ends at an angle and bind them down.
tie in two strands of midge flash by the middle, fold the second half back and tie it down.
repeat the same process with one barred rubber leg.
twist on some peacock ice dub and form a standard tapered body to the bead chain eyes.
tie in a single hen hackle feather.
make three to four wraps to form a collar. i prefer long fibers here for movement.
twist on a small amount of peacock ice dub, make one wrap behind the eyes and then form a neat head around the eyes and end with your thread right behind the hook eye.
whip finish and then give it a scrubbing with a dubbing brush to free those ice dub fibers that can get bound down (shown here) and give the whole thing a buggy appearance.
rust is a close second to the olive so it's worth having a few of these as well.
