                        Hook: 18-24 Mustad 94840 or Tiemco 200R
                        Thread : Gray 8/0 or smaller
                        Tail: Brown hackle fibers
                        Abdomen: Brown Olive Superfine dubbing
                        Thorax: Adams Gray Superfine dubbing
                        Wingcase and legs: Gray hackle fibers

Step 1. Lay down a thread base and tie in 6-8 brown hackle fibers. Cinch down fibers a little
past the bend and clip the fibers off flush. The tail is intended to suggest a trailing shuck.

Step 2. Create a tapered abdomen to about two-thirds hook shank.

Step 3. Tie in 12-20 gray hackle fibers to form the wingcase then wrap a thorax with gray

Step 4. Pull the wing case over the dubbed thorax and secure near the hook eye with a couple of
thread wraps. Then divide the remaining hackle fibers and fold them back along each side to
form legs. Clip the leg fibers off flush and just longer than the wingcase.

This pattern can also be tied in PMD colors

eye. Make two additional wraps behind the wire.

Step 3. Build a tapered abdomen covering the tag end of the wire. Use a rocking motion
with the first layer or two of thread wraps for a smooth transition.

Step 4. Spiral the wire up to the bead. Break off wire by pulling in a circular motion.

Step 5. Tie in wing tuft about three hook eye widths behind eye and whip finish behind
bead. Apply head cement.

along the abdomen. Stop 1/2 along the hook shank , tie off the pheasant tail, and trim
the excess.

Step 3. Tie in brown or black Antron wool (substitute Darlon) fibers at the thorax
position with the longer portion facing to the rear. Use 1/4 to 1/3 the thickness of the
Antron wool depending on the size of fly.

Step 4. Create a slightly larger diameter thorax using thread or a small amount of

Step 5. Pull the Antron fibers over the thorax to form the wing case, and tie off.

hook and wrapping thread just behind the hook eye. Whip-finish and trim the legs to
slightly longer than the thorax.

Step 5. Whip finish and clip foam wing to a length of 1/16”.

Air bubbles will adhere to foam wing in the water simulating the gas sack that propels
