1. Wrap the shank of the hook with tying thread; apply head cement or another adhesive.
2. Wrap the copper wire in the middle 2/3 of the shank. I found that I had to use some pliers to hold the copper until I had a few wraps on the shank. I also used the pliers to “align” the wraps and keep them next to each other.
3. Attach the tail and build up the thread to a taper on the rear and front of the copper wraps. Heavily coat the copper with head cement, and allow drying.
4. Attach the while bucktail, yellow calf’s tail, skunk, and 4 strands of rainbow Krystal flash.
5. Finish the head.
