Do the usual to tie in tails and dub up to about 1/3 from eye.



Step 2

Take 2 equal sized CDC Feathers - preferably onces with narrow stems- u may wish to mix colours. Pull of fluff from the base of the feather. Lay the two feathers on top of each other and the lay on top of hook with good side down. Secure with 4-5 tight wraps of thread and cut of whats left of the bottom of the stems.



Step 3:

Wind on top hackle , then bottom hackle , cut off waste.



you should end up with something like this.



Step 4: For a Dun : Stroke all the fibres in an upward direction, bring the thread around the base of the wing to hold it upright, bring the thread back to the barb side of the wing. Dub thread and wind over base of wing and forward to eye to form thorax.



For a Spinner Stroke all the fibres in an upward direction, bring the thread around the base of the wing to hold it upright, bring the thread back to the barb side of the wing. Split the wing into two equal halves with a dubbing needle. Dub thread and wind over the split Wing in a figure of eight until the wings are well separated and lying horizontal.
Trim the wings to desired size.

This picture is prior to dubbing , I did a thread figure of 8 just to show how the result can be achieved.
