This one goes in the tailwater box. Since the standard pheasant tail tail seems to disappear on all of mine as soon as I put them in the water, I decided to use something a bit more durable. Weight is optional; either a few wraps of non-tox under the thorax or a bead.

hook - WFC Model 11 #14
thread - Uni 8/0 fire orange
tail - mottled hen
abdomen - medium tinsel pearl
thorax - Wapsi Sow-Scud rainbow
