Tie the copper wire tightly, from the front to the back.
Use dubbing -color hot pink- to form a butt. I use two layers of dubbing, but not too bulky for it would raise the wing.
Tie the tinsel at the front, go back. The to the front and tie.
Prepare the feathers, take off the fibers from the side we’ll place on the hook.
Make the ribbing holding the wing and belly. Use a needle for help between the feather fibers. Tie when reaching the head. Eliminate the tip from the belly.
Make a collar with 3 to 5 turns with the guinea hen feather. The fibers shouldn’t cover the white belly.
Place the jungle cock and finish with a conic, short, tidy head. The conic shape of the neck and the head should be sized harmoniously.
Finished M.M. Double Tuka.
