Tip: fine gold round tinsel, 5 turns, at the barb.
Tag: claret uni-floss, from the barb to the point.
Joint: peacock herl.
Rib: fine gold round tinsel, wound close, so the spacing is the same as the hook diameter.

Hackle: hot orange coque, over the front 1/4 only.
Collar: yellow dyed mallard flank.
Wing: purple dyed bronze mallard, tented, vertical style.
