Requirements

Before you begin tying trebles you will need a few basic tools. You will require a hook vise, a bobbin and a small pair of clippers (scissors).

Tying bucktail, squirrel tail, calftail trebles orjigs is somewhat similar. The major difference is to create a fuller bucktail you may wish to tie two collars of bucktail on larger trebles. Follow this simple guide and illustrations below.

Cover the hook shank with tread and head cement to form a bed for the hair. Tie on small bunches of hair letting them slip around the shank. Work plenty of head cement into each small bunch of hair after it has been tied on.

Tie on additional bunches of hair until you have a complete collar of hair around the hook shank.

(4)&(5) For a larger and heavier bucktail add a second collar ahead of the first collar.

(6) Work plenty of head cement over the thread winding, let dry and repeat.
