"Black Death"

When tying the "Black Death", are the hackles tied curving out or in? Thanks.

Smolt,

I've seen it tied both ways, with turned out splayed cape feathers and turned in or out using saddle feathers.
I personally prefere the splayed look to my tarpon flies, using 3 feathers on each side, 2 black 1 red.
Getting the feathers to lay tightly against each other requires good quality skins, I use Whiting American.

Mel
