For this pattern I use Daiichi Curve Nymph hook 1760

Wind in extra lead wire on top of the existing base lead wire

Tie in the Chinelle

Wrap the lead wire with Surgical tape, to create the shape

Flatten the abdomen with a pair of flat nose plier

Dub in the dubbing material

Dubbing cover about 3/4 of the hook shank

Tie in the mono eye

Wind in the Chenille to create the segment of the abdomen

Brush out some dubbing

Tie in the pre knot legs

Split the fiber as legs and antenna...Tie down the fiber

Dub in some dubbing to split the legs

BUrn the end of the Micro Velvet Rope, tie in as the wing case

Bring the Velvet rope to side, tie down next to the eye

Bring the Velvet rope under the mono eye

Bring the Velvet Rope over between the hook eye, over the mono eye... tie down

Whip finish... color the Velvet rope with marker

Drop a small drop of Deer Creek Diamond Hard UV resin... dry it with UV light
