Take a length of Fluo Green Glo Brite Floss and catch in and secure to the hook shank. Try and keep the body as uniform as possible. Don't run the waste floss too near the eye, this is where the hackle will be tied in and we don't want too much bulk. Hold the wool tail taught with your left hand and trim the tail to length using a single cut with a pair of scissors . Trim any waste wool from the body end and cover the ends with thread.
NB: Make sure that the floss sits on top of the hookshank when tying in. Sometimes the floss has a tendency to slip around the hook in the direction of the thread.
Take the copper wire and wind in even and open turns up the hookshank. Make sure that you wind in the opposite direction to that the herls were wound in. Secure with thread once near the eye. To trim the waste wire, rock the wire back and forth and it should snap at the tie in point.
Take a red game cock hackle and catch in with thread a little way from the eye. Wind the hackle 4 or 5 times, making sure that each wind occurs in front of the prior one. Now secure with thread and trim any waste feather.
