STEP 1

After tying in a bed of thread, secure the tungsten eyes and a strip of rabbit. Be sure to leave a bit of room in front of the eyes at the head of the fly.

STEP 2

Tie another strip of rabbit and wind up in tight turns to just short of the eyes and tie off. Cut the strip at an angle prior to this, it will help keep things neat and easy.

Step 3

In front of the eyes, tie in the mirror wrap. With the mirror wrap, make a couple of turns around and behind the eyes before making a couple of turns back and front. Tie off and finish.
