Wrap thread onto the hook shank from about 1mm behind the eye to the start of the hook bend. Tie in the hair tail material by making two loose wraps followed up with 3 to 5 tight wraps.
Take a clump of deer hair and tie it on the top of the hook shank with 3 loose wraps. Increase the thread tension so the hollow hair will flare a 180 degrees on top of the hook. Once in place carefully secure with 5 tight wraps. Add 5 more tight wraps in front of wing to stand it upright.
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
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.
