1. Run tying thread in close turns from the eye to a position slightly round the hook-bend. Catch in a few strands of cock pheasant tail.
2. Wind the thread back up the hook, securing the waste ends of the pheasant tail. Catch in a length of brown Flexi-Floss.
3. Stretch floss and secure to hook with thread turns. Dub on cream fur then wind in close turns so it covers three-quarters of shank.
4. With the body in place, stretch the Flexi-Floss and wind it over the body in open, evenly spaced turns.
5. Secure floss with thread then remove excess. Catch in a 6mm wide strip of yellow foam and a loop of pale yellow Poly Yarn.
6. Take a second pinch of the cream fur and dub on to thread. Wind from the eye to the wing base to form the thorax.
7. Draw foam over back of thorax, without stretching it. Secure the foam with thread turns and cast off with a whip finish.
8. Trim away the excess foam to leave a short stub and apply a drop of clear varnish to the bare thread.
