Another pattern first for me.

This one also tied in hand. This time I took a few shots though the tying process.

Head is finished with red danville 6/0 (which is a ***** to work with in this situation) as i didnt have red pearsalls, and one coat of varnish.

Start the tinsel for the body right after the tread is started on the hook.

Stop the thread just past the point for the tail tie in

Tail tied in and secured with touching wraps right until about 1 eye width behind the eye

next the gold tinsel body is wrapped and secure behind the eye with 5 wraps of waxed thread.

Tie in the claret hackle throat.

First of three bunches of mallard for the wing. Also the two sides of goose slips are prepared here.

Next slip of mallard tied in, with the goose sides flanking outside the wing.

A final 'roof' of mallard is tied on, the head finished and a three turn whip finish to secure everything

One coat of varnish.
