I've been trying to tie a Baetis cripple from looking at pictures in catalogs or online. But I'm feeling I'm not getting the hackle on right. And they get real tired of me over at Gary's when I stand around reading their books for hours and only buy a package of chenille. I figured I'd just tie a pheasant tail nymph without the copper wire and put a hair wing on backwards. But most patterns show a couple wraps of dun hackle around the wing tie-on. I thought maybe I should tie in the hackle butt before the wing goes on, but then should I tie off the hackle tip on top of the wing too? And tie the fly off on top of the wing too? It seems like the eye is hard to get to once the wing goes on.
