Dbl Haul- I generally use sddle hackle for the flatwings I tie if the feathers are tied to the rear of the hook. If I'm ting bay anchovies I'll use a neck hackle and tie it in near the eye of the hook. The neck hackle i sgenerally stiffer and won't wrap around the shank, but the saddles tied in at the rear are less stiff and yield more action and they don't foul if tied correctly. Just my $.02
