Put a good base of thread over the lead and then at tail tie in 3 t0 4 pieces of krystal flash. Take zonker strip and make a tail about a 3rd shorter than hook shank. after securing the tail wrap thread to front of hook. Than take remaining zonker strip and wrap hook shank with it. After each consecutive turn smooth the hairs of the strip back to keep them from getting caught under the next strip. Whip finish and coat with glue.
