                                       Tying Instructions
    1. Lay down a base with red floss from the eye to the bend. At the bend, form 
    a small "bump".

    2. Tail. The tail should be about the length of the hook's shank. Tie in a 
    small amount of calf's tail from the eye to the bump. 

    3. Wing. When tying in the wing, allow some space behind the eye for the hackle. 
    Tie the ParaPost perpendicular to the shank. Use 'figure-8' wraps to secure it. 
    Then, prop up the wing using two or three wraps around its base.

    4. Hackle. Both hackle feathers are tied in just behind the eye with the feathers 
    extending in front of the eye. 

    5. Head. Form a small head.

    6. Wrap both hackles towards the bend, two or three wraps in front of the wing, 
    and three wraps behind the wing (to the middle of the shank). Tie off the hackle. 

    7. Body. Tie in two strands of peacock herl mid-way between the hackle and the 
    bend. Wrap the herl to the bend, then to the hackle, and then back to the 
    starting point. Create a band of red floss centered in the herl (see photo), 
    and whip finish.

    8. Trim the wing to the same height as the hackle.
