God, that is an outstanding 'tie!'
In Oregon that would be deemed "illegal."

Readers Digest version:
1.) Use tinsel to get wire to the bend.
2.) Return tinsel to form flat body.
3.) Lie vernille along the shank.
4.) Use wire rib to bind vernille.
You know my policy, though. Never use a big word where verbiage of diminuitive proportions will suffice.

Yes I have to tie some of those, they are on the list, it looks like you are gluing that olve vernille chenille on the hook ?
Please confirm, otherwise looks like a nice simple alevin pattern which you do not need a glue gun and color sticks to make the sack.
