Wrap thread onto the hook shank from about 1mm behind the eye to the start of the hook bend. Wind to mid shank.
Tie on a thick clump of Glo-Bug yarn and secure with 5 tight wraps. You may want to include a small amount of yarn that is a contrasting color. This will later look like an egg's eye.
Whip finish head with 4 to 8 turns. Pull tag end firmly and cut off excess thread. Place a drop of head cement on knot and allow it to penetrate the thread base.
Pull yarn upwards and trim off level with sharp scissors. This will form a rounded body.
