Tail - UV kingfisher blue marabou
Body - glo-brite chenille flo-red (​I used Chrystal chenille Fire Orange)

dress hook post-2083-0-26057000-1526121835_thumb.jpg
add marabou (tail) post-2083-0-05537500-1526121870_thumb.jpg ​(I probably added less than I actually should or could have added for the tail)
Lay hackle down on secured marabou, Tie in hackle just at the tip point of the hook secure the hackle with serval tight wraps and cut the hackle tip off.

​tie in chenille post-2083-0-27151600-1526122242_thumb.jpg (to build the body where the marabou narrows on the hook I double wrap the chenille to create a torpedo like body, you will see in the next picture the shape I am talking about)
Wrap chenille post-2083-0-75653700-1526122286_thumb.jpg Lock chenille (​see the shape of the chenille body ... thicker behind the bead head...!!!)
​Wrap hackle post-2083-0-08179400-1526122485_thumb.jpg Lock hackle (over time I have made my own habits and techniques and my flies may not look like yours or that of anyone else's and that's ok for them to be different! Can you see a difference between my fly and yours already? )
Tie head and whip finish post-2083-0-53254700-1526122522_thumb.jpg post-2083-0-38523800-1526122536_thumb.jpg post-2083-0-07263200-1526122547_thumb.jpg post-2083-0-76616200-1526122565_thumb.jpg
