Tying instructions

  1. Make a small foundation for the cone by covering the hook shank right behind the hook eye with a bit of thread. Don't make it too thick or long. The cone must fit snugly over it.
  2. Cut the tying thread, dab a drop of super glue on the thread wraps and slide the cone over it.
  3. Let dry/cure.
  4. Tie in the zonker strip right behind the cone. Just in the front and not too tight.
  5. Add a drop of glue right in front of the strip and push the whole thing, thread wraps and the front fur part of the strip into the cone with your fingers or a set of fine pliers.
  6. Let dry/cure.
