The Simi Seal made for an interesting effect and allowed for a bit of alliteration. Winged it like Davie McPhail’s version, tying the deer hair in like a Sparkle Dun and folding it back. Hand knotted the pheasant tail legs in an attempt to save some money; it shows.

hook - WFC Model 11 #10
thread - Veevus 8/0 tan
tag - Depth Ray fire orange/resin
rib - medium tinsel opal
body/head - Simi Seal holo gold/hare’s ear

wing - deer hair
