See Goose Biot Prep for more info.

1. Make sure the thread is hanging at the end of the hook shank near the bend. Take one of the biots and place against the top of the hook shank at an angle so that the tail will be 1/2 to 3/4 of the hook shank length. Make a loose wrap of thread and tighten. If the biot position changes you can pull or push it into place.
2. Make about four wraps at the same area to anchor the biot butt down tight. Leave thread hanging at rear of hook.


3. Hold other biot against top of hook shank so that butts of both biots line up and biot lengths will be equal. This is why we made sure that biots were the same length when we did the prep. Make a loose wrap and tighten.
4. Wrap forward, anchoring biot butts.
5. Be sure these wraps are tight so tail will not pull out or move.
6. Tail should look like this.
