Tie in your thread at the back of the hook where you will be tying in the tail. A base layer over the length is not necessary as it makes it easier to spin the deer hair on the bare hook!

Tie in the tail and leave it long, 3-4" is good!

Spin in clumps of deer hair, tie in front of each clump and stack it back.
