|Wings||zelon or antron yarn|
Wrap thread onto the hook shank from about 1mm behind the eye to the start of the hook bend. Tie in the hackle fibers by making two loose wraps followed up with 3 to 5 tight wraps.
Next tie in the zelon wing by selecting the desired amount and figure 8 wrapping it to the hook shank. Position it so it spreads out evenly to both sides. Secure with 5 tight wraps.
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.
Continue to wind dubbing in front of the wing and secure with 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 the thread base. Trim wings to the desired size.
