Cut a width of fibers from a mottle’d turkey quill feather equal to the width of the drop+ shot, and tie in facing forward.
Tie in a stripped peacock herl at the rear of the hook, and palmer it forward to the wingcase to form the body. Whipfinish or double half-hitch in front of the wingcase and trim off the thread.
Apply your Bug-Bond Lite to the quill body and cure it with UV light to add durability to the quill body (as well as give it some depth.
Re-attach your flame orange uni-thread in front of the drop+.
Create a dubbing loop and insert a sparse amount of fibers from a hares mask. Twist to form a dubbing rope.
Palmer the hares mask dubbing rope in front of the Drop+ shot, creating a buggy thorax.
Pull the wingcase forward to the eye of the hook and tie off. Build up a hot-spot/head with the UNI-thread. Whip finish and apply your varnish of choice to finish the fly.
