Tying in The Wing Tying The Topping Over The WingClip The Excess Ends

Next the wing is tied in. This is probably the area where the most variation is encountered, so use your common sense again to determine the correct order and amounts. Cut in a small bunch of bucktail or other wing material and align the tips. Tie them in over the point on the hook shank where the throat was secured. If the pattern calls for a topping, tie it in over the wing. Clip the excess ends at a taper toward the eye so that you can finish with a neatly tapered head.
