Place the hook in the vise.

Start the thread as shown.

.Take a couple of loose wraps around the Oiler Puff. Pull it to the exact length you want it extended past the hook eye.

Wrap it down full length of the hook shank.  Leave the tips for tail gills.  At this point you may want to trim off some of the tips. 

Add a single strand of pearl Flashabou.

Wrap your thread back toward the ey of the hook to form the body of the fly.

Rib with the pearl Flashabou.

Add a thorax of peacock herl.

Finish with head cement.

The Oiler Puff a the head end of the fly will trap enough air to allow the fly to sink slowly in the vertical position.
