**Step 6. **Starting at the hook eye, tie in a liberal amount of white deer hair, wrapping it around the hook, and extending to ½ inch past the eyes. Whip-finish the thread just behind the eye; trim the excess thread. The head can be glued at this point to finish the fly or can be epoxied for added durability. Captain Tanis advises that this fly can be tied in various colors, although white and pink are the most popular. He has tied this fly up to a 4/0 hook, although hooks up to 6/0 could be used for larger species such as Sailfish and Marlin. Make sure to sharpen all hooks, and have fun catching all that swims in the ocean.
