    Wing buds:Brown Swiss Straw(Raffene) - tied
       in as a long enough,doubled,thin strip close

       thorax.Then both ends are folded forward
       toward the hook eye and covered over once
       again with thread back up to the head point.
       Think of a reverse "Z" configuration for the

       wound forward.

       ...After winding on the dubbed thorax cover/legs
       ,pull the wing buds back,tie them at the thorax
       top only,using 2 or 3 wraps,then tie off in front
       of the breathers and behind the hook eye.
        Clip the breathers,the top of the thorax,the wing
       buds,and the few leg fibres to appropriate lengths.
       Cover the trimmed thorax cover with a few coats
       of a vinyl cement and then cement the tie-off behind
       the hook eye.Finally,shrink the abdomen wrap with
       a hair dryer.
