"The shape may be obtained by tying the hooks back to back, the top one to be tied about quarter way down the shank of the end one, and gut tied tightly on each, (twisted gut of course when you form a loop)." William Blacker.
Firstly, I have done the hooks for The Palmer fly № 7 (variant), have japaned and ready for tying.
Secondory, I have been trying to understand recommendation of Blacker.
Then I had prepared mohair and pig wool, and tying in the hand as I have understand the Palmer fly according this pattern.
Of course I don't find old style feathers for hackle in colour as blue dun with yellowish tip of barbs, and there are subtitute.
Nevetheless,The Palmer fly № 7 (variant) for your's opinion and remarks, Cheers, gentlemen!
