I've been tying them for Neah Bay and I try to tie them like I remember seeing on a Clouser tying VHS I used to own. Here goes....

Tie in thread...


Tie in lead eyes - I like to use a drop of Zap-a-Gap to help secure them after tying them in...


Tie in first clump of belly bucktail ahead of lead eyes and secure back to hook bend...


Tie in 4 saddles, two on each side of the bucktail...


Add flash on both sides of the hackle. I like the flash to extend past the hackle by 1/2" - 1"


Tie in a small clump of white bucktail behind the eyes. Make sure it surrounds the hackles to help reduce fouling...


Flip over and tie in top color of bucktail (I know of no other color besides chartreuse ;)) and apply head cement to head and thread wraps behind the eyes...


Remove, center chartreuse bucktail and catch fish...
