3. Wind the bunny strip forward over the shank, making sure to pull fairly hard to create tight wraps. Lock the strip in place with thread just behind the eyes. Crisscross the strip once around the eyes, make a few more spiral wraps with it around the shank in front of the eyes, then lock the strip down with the thread. Trim the excess rabbit strip. Add some final thread wraps, whip-finish, cement, and fish.
