For what it's worth, here's a step-by-step view of a recent tie.
Tip/Tag/Tail. Tried to incorporate a taper beginning all the way back at the tip. Accidentally burnished in a fuzzball, but it fell off later.
Here's the double veiling. Back-to-back strips of married goose, with ringneck over (doubled so the good sides are out on both sides).
Herl butt (which I was particularly chuffed about), and a build up of the next tapered underbody segment after tying in this section's tinsel).
Down & back silk, tinsel wrapped, top & bottom ringneck (each doubled so the good sides are out on both sides), & a herl butt (that is rubbish compared to the 1st).
Built up the next underbody section after tying in the body hackle, floss rib & tinsel rib.
Finished body segment (before working the hackle to get more of a "swept" effect).
Badger throat & grizzly underwing. Ended up shortening the underwing a tad after this shot. You can see my "man-handling" slid some of the tinsel/veiling out of alignment.
Married wing tied in. Next a sparse ringneck collar.
Final fly after a little grooming.
