I had warched Enrico tie his flies a number of times and his instructions are hard to find. You can try his web site or simply try a Google and it maybe on other sites. He applies the material in 1/8 inch to 1/4 wide strips about two to three inches long ...along the hook shank...then combs them to blend. He has a velcro patch stuck to the vise pedestle and lines up the cut strips to the velcro to keep them together and pulls them off for each application.... working from the hook bend then forward. This is different than the way Mike Martinek applies simmilar material (not EP fibers)...he bunches the material in his hands, tears them a couple times and applies them from back to front... then combs out also.
