    Unless they're blind, Zander should take a gander at those, Adam!

    Some materials I scored at the W Seattle Fly Tying Mega Garage Sale; bucktail, Crystal Flash, nickel dumbell eyes, and some really cool Mustad 1/0 SS hooks.

    One of my first attempts down to a #22. Hopefully a successful sacrifice to some hungry dry siders!

    IMG_0449.JPG Still experimenting with the tent wing/hair wing combo. This one is orange spey hackle tips over orange arctic fox over pink arctic fox. Hook is a McNeese 1.

    Are you able to get them to "tent" or does the far one want to roll on you?

    I have found that the rolling oftentimes has more to do with the choice of feather rather than technique. Having the hair wing to tent them over does seem to make it easier. I try to "roll" them into the position that I like.

    Crush the stem of the wing feather at your tie in point, it will minimize the rolling of the feather.

    This is a good trick, but also has a lot to do with the feather itself. I've noticed that A LOT of feathers will roll or twist in a set of pliers too. I'm glad you mentioned that, however, because in many cases when one trick doesn't work another does. When it comes to tenting hackle tips the more tricks the better.
