  12. If you notice there is no thread in front of the peacock Herl. The Herl is the first thing on the hook and then the Hackle is tied in ,wound ,and tied off. The body which is silk is wound back midpoint of the barb and then wound forward and whip finished just behind the wing forming a sort of thorax.Thanks for the compliment.
