Cut, clean and stack a clump of deer hock. Measure the hair against the hook so it is a shank length long. Cut the butt ends of the hair so the remaining clump is just a shade longer than the hook shank.

Place the butt ends of the hair just behind the hook eye and put two firm wraps of thread around them, flaring the hair slightly. Wrap the thread forward through the butt ends of the hair to the eye.
