Apparently it’s as simple as 1-2-3.
For those who don’t want to read and don’t mind listening to Puck here’s the Vimeo video
1. Tie in the bead chain eyes about ¼ inch back from the hook eye.
2. Tie in the zonker strip at the front of the eyes, and bind down to the end of the shank.
3. Cut the skin of the zonker strip. Bring the thread back to the head and tie off. Add a drop of glue, and it’s done.
The Ligon was originally tied by Arcardo and Peck. I use it for bass and large bluegill. Puck
