Use a wide gap or grub hook in size 20 to 12 and wrap it with thread of a colour of your choice. Shown is chartreuse but claret, red or black works well. Wrap a bump of thread over the barb.Take a white small mallard flank feather pul away the fluff then pull the fibres in the reverse manner in order to create the wing. Tie in and then clip the tip of the feather off.
