Step 1: Attach thread to the hook. Take a 3-inch-long piece of 30-pound monofilament, double it over and then tie down, beginning at the bend of the hook. This forms a stay that will prevent the hackles from fouling while casting.Capt. Ted Lund

Step 2: Select four or six saddle hackles, approximately 3 to 4 inches in length. Remove any stray barbells at the quill end, making it possible to secure them flatly. Then pair them up facing each other and tie down.Capt. Ted Lund

Step 4: Select two long, webby hackles the same color as the tail. Leave the fluffy marabou around the quill end. Tie in just ahead of the tail. Palmer forward, making sure to tease with your fingers after each wrap. Continue palmering for three-quarters of the bare hook-shank length.Capt. Ted Lund

Step 5: Take two long, webby saddle hackles and strip the marabou from the quill end. Tie in and then palmer forward, again teasing after each wrap. Fold palmered hackles back, tie off, whip finish and apply head cement.Capt.ted Lund
