Step by step
Step 1 melt a small collar at the end of the liner tube, big enough to flare the materials being tied in.
Step 2 Next start tying at the melted collar and secure with a bit of super glue.
Step 3 Take some of the shorter hair from some pahtagorva opossum pelt and tie in wrapping right around the liner tube, with your thread tie back as far as possible to the melted collar, the flare the materials up as much as you like. Trim away the waste nice and neat with a scalpel and secure with some more super glue if needed.
Step 4 Next tie in 4-5 feelers using stripped cock hackles and trimmed to length top and bottom for the right length and maximum vibration. You can run them through finger and thumb nails to curve them if desired. Trim away the waste and secure with super glue.
Step 5 With some sunburst easy dubbing make a short fat dubbing ball with a small taper down to the liner tube.
Step 6 Next add some super glue to the liner tube infront of the dubbing ball and push a metallic brown 4mm tungsten bead back into the dubbing ball, hold it in for a little while to make sure the glue has set a hackle tool really helps.
Step 7 Repeat the process with a fl.orange or fl.red 4mm hybrid cone.
Step 8 Cut away the liner tube 2-3mm from the cone and melt down with a lighter, whilst still hot press down the tubing with a flat surface to make it extra neat and secure.
