Step 1- The hook I used is a long curved "Mustad C53S". Start thread behind hook eye.(black or brown thread). Tie in 2 micro-fibbets for antennae and tie in a burnt mono eyes 2 or 3 mm behind hook eye. Bring tying thread back to hook point.
Step 2- Tie in 3 micro-fibbets for tails & use figure 8 wraps to spread them and tie in the ribbing material just a little in front of the tail tie off point.
Step 3- Start to dub a taper body with some rabbit dubbing to about 3 quarter of the hook shank. Start ribbing the body and tie off ribbing where body dubbing ends.
Step 4- Used some dubbing to cover the ribbing tie off area and tie in 2 goose biot for wings (concave side facing up). Tie in scud back material above the biot tie in point and cover tie off area with a darker colour rabbit dubbing.
Step 5- Tie in soft hackle fibres for legs on each side & cover tie off area with rabbit dubbing. Repeat 2 more times, using shorter hackle fibres than the one before.
Step 6- Lightly dub tying thread & figure 8 wraps around the eyes and pull the scud-back over the thorax area and right behind hook eye and tie off.
Step 7- Add UV resin on top of scud-back and cote with a layer of head cement.
Step 8- Is optional. Colouring the Thorax UV resin, Tails & Antennae with permanent markers.
