The first thing you want to do is make sure your hook is secured in your vise before tying on your thread.
Once your hook is secured in the vise and your bobbin is loaded with thread, you can begin.
Positioning your hands
T0 position your hands, hold the bobbin in your tying hand, then grasp the end of the thread in your ‘non tying’ hand.
Move your ‘non tying’ hand holding the thread, in front of you near the hook point.
Now, Hold onto that thread and bring your bobbin over the hook shank and then back under.
Thats your first wrap! Do it again, and after two or three wraps your hook should look like above. You can now snip off that piece of thread you were holding, and take a wrap or two to cover the waste ends.
(Keep in mind you will stop your thread and cut it at different stages in all different patterns, many will not even run the length of the hook shank. This is just for practice and technique)
This step is complete! Continue with your pattern from here.
