1. Attach thread 1/4 inch from the eye of the hook. Wrap a base of thread and return
to tie-in. Measure fox squirrel so the wing is the length of the shank. It should be quite
bushy. Tie the wing forward and divide into two equal sections. Make wraps in front
of the wing until it stands up at a 45 degree angle.
2. Measure fox squirrel tail 1/4 inch longer than the shank and tie in. The tail should
also be quite bushy.

3. Dub three equal sections of dark brown, yellow, and dark brown. The final section of dark brown should be dubbed right up behind the wing.
4. Tie in one hackle, directly behind wing, make three wraps behind the wing and two wraps in front of the wing. Tie off, whip and cement.
