Tying the Okay Dokey Step 1

STEP 1 : The hook used on the Okay Dokey can be a standard buzzer hook (Kamasan B110) or a Kamasan B420 Sedge Hook. Here I've used a B420 Sedge Hook. Catch in some fine silver wire and No 16 Glo-Brite Floss and continue down around the bend..

Tying the Okay Dokey on a B110

Note : This is the version tied on a Kamasan B110 hook, I tend to make both the body and head "Chunkier". It makes a variation having both types of Okay Dokey in your box.
