Adding First Collar of Bucktail!

the hackle you just tied onto the hook. One bunch will be tied
between each of the shanks. If the head cement you
applied earlier has dried apply a little more now...

Step 2:: Using your scissors, cut a small bunch of bucktail from
your bucktail. It is important to remember to ensure the bunches
are not to large.

Step 3: Place the first bunch of hair between the first two shanks
and slowly wrap two or three loose wraps of thread around the hook
and hair. Using your fingers distribute the hair evenly and wrap six
to seven more wraps but apply more pressure this time so the
is now held snuggly by the thread.
