Hook: Partridge BIN #16
Thread: Sheer 14/0, tan
Tail and wing: Woodduck
Rib: Hends 0.09 wire, gold
Abdomen: Wapsi Superfine #12 olive
Thorax: Squirrel

Dun:







Hook: Partridge SLD #16
Thread: Sheer 14/0, tan
Tail: Coq de Leon
Abdomen: Wapsi Superfine #12 olive
Thorax: Squirrel
Post: Funky Fibre, grey
