Biot Is Too Short For Body Length
By AK Best

This is from A.K. Bests', Advanced Fly Tying, chapter on Tying Yourself Out of Trouble:

Tie the biot to the hook as you normally would. Bring the thread forward to midshank. Begin wrapping the biot and, when you reach midshank, wrap both biot and thread at the same time, beging certain that the thread is always on top of the biot. Each turn of biot is held down by a turn of thread. This technique will also prevent the biot from completely unwinding should it get cut by a trout's tooth. And it allows you to tie off the biot with a minimum of turns.

Once again, use a thread that is the same color as the biot. ~ A. K. Best
