I use a rotary cutter (scissors will work) to cut thin strips of chamois - less than 1/8" wide and about 3" long. Taper one end. Take a 2X or 3X long streamer hook and wrap it with lead (or leadfree) wire. I cover most of the hook shank. The reicpe I saw used yellow thread - so that's what I use. 6/0 Uni, to be specific. Tie the chamois strip down at the back of the shank and wind the thread forward. Wrap the chamois stip forward and tie it down behind the eye. Cut off any excess. Make a little yellow 'head' and finish knot. That's it.
There is three times as much water on Earth as there is land. Any fool can see, God intended man to fish three times as much as he works.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
