|Wings||2 grizzly hackle tips|
Wrap thread onto the hook shank from about 1mm behind the eye to the start of the hook bend. Tie in about a dozen moose fibers and secure with 5 tight wraps.
Tie in 2 grizzly hackle tips in an upright position and secure with 5 tight wraps. Trim away excess. Divide wings by figure 8 wrapping thread in between them.
Select hackle for proper size and desired stiffness. Cut stem at junction with webby and stiff fibers. Strip away fibers exposing 2 to 3mm of stem. Tie in stem with 2 loose wraps to place, followed up with 3 to 5 tight thread wraps. Concave side of hackle is opposite of body.
Wax thread with a light coat of wonder wax. Apply a thin amount of dubbing. Spread dubbing fibers out evenly on thread. Wrap dubbed thread evenly forward to the front end of the body. Tie off with 3 to 5 tight wraps. Evenly wind both hackles with wraps behind and in front of wing.
Whip finish head with 4 to 8 turns. Pull tag end firmly and cut off excess thread. Place a drop of head cement on knot and allow it to penetrate both the thread base and hackle stems.
