Place bead on to hook
Tie in the thread to just before the bend of the hook, snipping off excess
Tie in Marabou feathers of choice, snipping with thumb and forefinger away excess
Tie in the AXXEL 6X of choice, bringing the thread back to the bead
Now bring AXXEL 6X in touching turns up to the bead, and going back and forth in touching turns building up a neat tapered body.
Secure the AXXEL 6X with the UNI-Thread 6/0 and snip off excess
Build a small neat head behind the bead and snip off.
Give the body a couple of coats of varnish to give added strength to the thread for when the fish takes the fly
Here are some variants
A fly that's taken the still water scene here by storm,
