Now take the thread back to a position just over half way up the hook shank covering in the stems of the pheasant tail fiobres, then return the thread back down and up again until the hook is covered and a uniform body is created. Return the thread to a position just in front of the pheasant tail ends. (Do not snip the pheasant tail ends, these will be used for the thorax cover).
Wind the Micro UV Straggle Fritz up the hook shank until you reach the eye and tie off with thread. (After each wind of the straggle fritz, brush the fibres back with your finger so they aren't trapped in the winding, wet your fingers if necessary).
