The old classic Green Highlander converted into a hairwing conehead tube fly.

The wing has been tight in as a "Tempel-dog tube fly-style" this mean that the wing is tied in front of body and then folded back. This again means that the top of the wing, has to be tied in as the first layer, repeat it, until you have all colours in your wing. Each layer has to be shorter, to form a nice wing
