Len's Hackle Merkin

I'm new to the forum and new to fly tying, but I'm really enjoying both. I tied some banded snapping shrimp tonight. Need some work and had to improvise on some materials, but really a deadly looking fly! Thank you Black Francis. I also want to try Len's Hackle Merkin (Dick Brown's Book), but I don't understand how to tie in "folded" grizzly saddle hackle. What does he mean by folded? Can anyone give me some help? Also, I could use a good "basics" book that includes techniques for salt water flys. Any suggestions? Brown's book provides great patterns on a lot flys, but doesn't cover much on techniques.

Thanks!
