video - Korn's Spent Wing Spruce Moth

If your going to fish out West - Don't leave home without them!

As always my video's are a little rough around the edges but, I hope you find it "good enough".

Hook: Dai-Riki #305 14
Thread: Serafil 200 tan or Uni 6/0-8/0 
Rib: tag end of thread 
Abdomen: DK #14 Spruce Moth dubbing or light tan
Palmered hackle: honey or light ginger rooster, palmered front to back, trapped with tag end thread ribbed to eye, clipped short on top and bottom.
Wing: 2 Salmon Favorelle hen chicken feathers (very light ginger), or buff pheasant feathers, tied in flat one on top of the other, 1 gape length longer than hook, tied behind eye then folded over to form the head and whip finished. 
Varnish the head and 1/3 of the wing.

Special Note: My "Korn's Spent Wing Caddis" is tied the same way as the Spruce Moth see it here:
