Spey flies

So, does anybody know enough about tying spey flies to tell me some tips to get that relaxed flowing spey hackle look? Whether it's salmon or steelhead flies,the relaxed droop of the spey hackle really intrigues me. The fly I am attempting is the Lady Caroline and the first couple look stilted and stiff. The spey hackle stem seems very thick too and only begrudgingly palmers around the hook. I am hoping someone has been here before....
