Step 6: Cut off the corners of the foam tapering it down, tie onto front hook to the start of the backing loop.
Step 7: Tie in the Estaz.
Step 8: Wrap Estaz to the front of the hook shank.
Step 9: Move your tying thread back about 1/3rd the distance of the hook shank, fold the foam over, making the fold just past the hook eye.
