3. Start ribbing the body in touching turns, tight at first and begin to loosen up the clear stretch slowly to make a somewhat taper body, tie off clear stretch at thorax area around 2 or 3 mm behind hook eye.
4. Now is a good time to add some legs with a few hackle, partridge or mottle hen fibres.( optional)
