Hackle Gauge

I'm new to fly tying and, as basic a question as this may be, I have not read the answer anywhere and have a question about the proper use of the hackle gauge.

Since feathers usually taper from wide to narrow at the tip, what end of the hackle is used to determine the size for any given size hook? The largest?

Thanks!
Ralph
