- Mount the bead on the hook.
- Place the hook in the vise and start the thread behind the bead. (Sliding lead wire under the bead will keep it from wobbling.)
- Tie on two strands of the rubber tail material behind the bead. Stretch the rubber material as you wrap over it toward the bend. Stop at a point on the shank directly above the barb of the hook. Clip the tail slightly longer than the shank of the hook.
- Return the thread to a point behind the bead. Tie on the chenille and wrap over it towards the bend stopping at the point on the shank directly above the barb.
- Bring the thread forward to behind the bead. Wrap the chenille forward and tie it off one eye length behind the bead. Clip the excess chenille.
- Prepare and tie in a black hackle behind the bead. Make two or three wraps of hackle and tie it off. Clip the excess.
- Whip-finish and apply a dab of head cement.
