Step 2:
Tie in sparse amount of grey ripple ice for the tail (about the length of the hook shank to head of the pin) Important to keep it very thin to achieve a proper taper. Measure and tie in then fold over rear portion and tie in to complete tail.

Step 3:
Tie in underbody right behind or in front of jig hook eye. Fibers should extend about 3/4 way toward tip of tail. Measure and tie in then fold over rear portion to proper length and tie in before trimming.
