RE:Spey flies

What hackle are you using? If you are using blue eared pheasant, make sure you try feathers with the thinnest stems for the length you need. Fold the hackle, as per the directions in all the manuals, and wet it down thoroughly with spit (yuck). Press the fibers down along the hook shank with your fingers as you palmer the hackle.

Good luck,

Eric
