Fly Tying Hints And Tips - Doubling A Hackle - Tay Salmon Fly






I had a request for some images on how to double a hackle.

1:- Tie in your hackle tip first, then trim the tip of the feather with your scissors.

2:- Fold the feather back over itself, catch in with a turn or 2 of thread.

3:- Wynd the hackle around until its pointing towards you.

4:- Hold the feather firmly at the base and stroke the feathers all in the one direction backwards.

5:- Wynd on the hackle as normal, catch in with a few turns of thread, then cut of the rest of the feather.

6:- Tidy up the odd loose bit of feather with the thread.
