Default Re: Tying a good hunchback

I've seen that cut-out lead strip technique before but I am very leery that it would stay in place on the hook.

I prefer to use lead wire or flat tape and make layers. The first covers most of the body portion of the hook. Make a second layer that begins above the hook point and goes short of the eye, then you can make one more layer shorter yet. It looks good if you use the flat tape, it creates the general shape and weighs the sucker down very nicely. Then you can continue to bulk it up with dubbing if need be.
