Start by making an extremely thin body, just with thread

Flip over and tie in a clump of green dubbing on each side of the hook, leave long

Flip right side up, place black clump on each side of hook, 1.5 hook lengths long,

Place brown clump on top, leave long.

Whip finish and pull any loose strands out. I then super glue or head cement the head, letting a very little amount soak into the fiber to make them more durable.

cut at a downward angle to create taper of desired length, I like 2 hook lengths long or right around there.
