Hook: TMC C200 BL 14-16
Thread: UNI Thread 8/0 - Grey
Under Body: Lead Wire .020
Dubbing: Sow Scud Dub - Tan Rainbow
Shell Back: UV Curing Glue - Loon Thick
Step 1: This is important, make a very tight and solid thread base. It will help with keeping the lead from sliding around.
Step 2: Tie in the lead along the side of the hook shank. Do this on both sides, making a thin and wide profile. Use a small drop on UV glue to secure once both sides are tide on.
Step 3: Pick your dudding color.
Step 4: You will need 3 times as much dubbing as you would think you do.
Step 5: Tightly wrap the body, getting as much dubbing on the hook as possible. This will make combing trimming much easier.
Step 6: Whip finish and cut off thread.
Step 7: Brush and pick out all the dubbing.
Step 8: Once you brush all the budding to the sides, add a coat or two of UV curing glue to form a nice smooth shell back.
Step 9: Trim the sides, I like to keep them a little wider, this give the fly a little more movement.
