#1
First I pick a painted head and
wrap a thread base from the
head about 1/4"down the shank.

Then I select the plastic I'll use (I
prefer Crappie Thunder's
because they have bulk & are
fairly tough but about any solid
body plastic will do) and cut the
tail off.
#3
Thread the body onto the hook and
apply a tiny drop of super glue to the
thread base and push the plastic
against the jighead.
#4
Clamp hook in vise and with forceps, push
body towards the jighead and clamp it.
#5
Wrap a thread base to
the hook bend
#6
Tie in flash (I use 1
strand, doubled twice
making 4 strands).
#7
Pull & stack hackle
barbules for tail and tie in,
tie 2 half-hitches and cut
thread.
#8
Apply a tiny drop of super
glue to thread just below
clamp.
Remove clamp and pinch &
twist body to push plastic over
thread/glue. Cut flash to
desired length
