    Just a quick question: what’s the trick on getting the overwing to conform to the foam body so nicely like in the pre-tied version in the box?

      It’s tricky, but pinching the feather at the base as you place it over the foam body can help to shape it how it is on the fly in the box. Also, voodoo black magic helps.

        Thanks. I’ll go pick up some black magic today. Also – sorry about the duplicate comment…Internet browser timed out.

    What’s the trick to getting the overwing to sit so nicely on the foam body like in the pre-tied version in the box?
