Hook: Partridge CS15 #2
Tail: Lady Amherst pheasant crest
Body: Black floss
Ribbing: Reverse wrapped with fine silver oval tinsel then wrapped with red floss behind mediun silver oval tinsel
Throat: Red guinea fowl
Wing: 2 red hackles flanked by black hackles
Shoulder: Silver pheasant
Eyes: Jungle cock
Notes: As the name implies, this design was inspired by the beloved confection. The extra ribbing twisted around the shank is purely for decoration, but should remind one of the familiar spirals of the red and black licorice tubes. The tail crest may be difficult to find in which case, a red dyed golden pheasant crest should be substituted.
