Trim the tip of the hackle flush and then cut a clump of McFlylon from the hank. I usually use a bit more than one strand, but not quite two whole strands..maybe one and a half strands, or one and three quarters, maybe even one and five eighths of a strand, but two strands seems to be entirely too much. Lay this clump in against the front of the hackle as shown here. You can see that you needed to plan on leaving some extra space behind the hook eye and I should probably have reminded you of this earlier, but…I didn’t. Haha, joke’s on you.
