Step 1: Tying in the foam body
Insert hook into vise and start thread, advancing to the rear of the hook shank above the barb. Prepare a small strip of sandwiched bicolor foam about the length of the hook shank and half the width of the hook gap. Here I have chosen a combination of brown and gold to represent a golden stonefly.
