Easy Daddy

The time of Daddy Long Leggs (Tipula sp. for those of Latin inclination) is getting near. For the time it comes I propose the following simple and easy imitation made almost entirely of Pheasant tail.

The tie:
#10 Tiemco TMC 100BL hook
8/0 UNI Thread Tan
Pheasant tail body ribbed with leftover body thread
Pheasant tail legs (I used 4, but 6 or even 8 are a valid option)
Polypro yarn wings
Hare dubbing thorax
