These are tied on Size 1 hook

" I tie these flies with mono because they get thrashed pretty hard.
1. Tie in bucktail and Flash at the bend of the hook (length is your preference)
2. Tie in hackle at the bend and wrap forward (I tie it in by the tip so the longer fibers of the base of the feather end up near the eye of the hook).
3. Tie in your foam 1/8" from the eye. Leave approximately 3/16" hanging over the eye.
4. At this point you need to bring the thread to the bend of the hook working through the hacklesop you don't lay it down.
5. Tie the foam down at the bend of the hook and tie off.
6. Fold the foam forward and tie down at the eye. I put some wraps on and whip finish UNDER the foam heads so they stand up. Cement and go fishing!"

A short shank Eagle Claw 254 Size 2 saltwater hook used here
Thread: Danville Flat Waxed Nylon used here because of it's strength since you'll want to crank down on the bucktail
Body is built using successive bunches of bucktail tied in tips forward, then tips are swept back and locked in place with thread.
See step by step here: Hollow Fleye

This fly was built in 4 bunches:
from rear
1st bunch: yellow was tied in on bottom of shank, chartreuse on top
2nd bunch: repeat above
3rd bunch: Orange bucktail on bottom, yellow on sides, chartreuse on top
4th bunch: Black bucktail
