Step 1- Tie in tail
Step 2- tie in turkey and copper wire, carefully place Rump Filo Plume on top of turkey 
Step 3- generous amount of dubbing- hexes are fairly big bugs- use the lighter of two dubbings
Step 4- wrap dubbing forward and fold turkey with plume up and wrap with copper wire along the way, be careful not to catch as much of the plumes as possible- we want this abdomen to breathe.
Step 5- dub thorax and close to head, not all the way.
Step 6- thin strip of foam for underwing.
Step 7-Tie in Hackle feathers.
Step 8- Cut and stack Deer hair.
Step 9- measure and secure with a few good wraps- trim.
Step 10- wrap hackle under deer hair- alternately you could tie in the hackle under the foam and wrap under the foam as well.
Step 11- cut and trim deer hair, tie down hackle, build small head, whip finish, cut off ends of foam.
