Start thread on shank and wrap to halfway point of hook. Tie in silver wire and wrap thread back to above the barb. Wrap thread back up to thorax area and follow with silver wire, making a nice ribbed body. Tie in white goose biot to fit the size of pattern you are tying. The biot should not go past the bend of the hook. Trim the excess biot. Tie in dun hackle. Wrap hackle around 3-4 times to create the legs. Tie off the hackle and trim the excess. Whip finish a small head.
