    You may need to encourage the twisting, but some should occur on its own, if it doesn't, you need to twist it more. This shot shows the furled tail ready to be released, and tied down at the first end tie down. The excess chinelle hanging down is to wrap the body.

    i saw alec jackson use this method to make his own chenille for a skykomish sunrise. ostrich herl and wire. i guess it makes the fly lighter, is that true?

    It doesn't really make the fly lighter, but AJ really likes to use natural materials. Yes, using the hackle pliers and dubbing twister was first taught to me for that technique, but it works well in other places like here.
