Dub with the color that you want the body to be. This is Hareline Chocolate dubbin.
The wing color for PMDs that I use.
You may have to tie a few to get the amount correct.
Dub onto the tread and make it fairly tight.
With your thumb and index finger, slide the dubbing down the thread so it bunches up on the thread.
Once it is on top of the hook shank, make sure you hold it there with your fingers and make a complete wrap of thread around the hook shank. When you pull down on the thread, the dubbing ball should stay put right on top of the hook shank.
It will not be secure so you will need to make a few wraps to secure it better. I wrap in front and behind as well as use some X wraps.
