Again Don thanks for sharing. Good stuff

THANKS MUCH DON FOR THIS VIDEO AND I REALLY ENJOYED IT A LOT BUDDY !!!!!!!! NICE BUG MAN ..........

 Thanks David, I do enjoy sharing the ties that have worked so well for me. .If I could figure out how to make the camera work a little better, these videos might make more sense. ...................Don

Oh no, another danged video!
Would you object to a written summary, fur the video challenged among us?
Thanks Don. You're becoming quite the production master.
Darned videos! (I'm a mobile broadband user - video eats my data allowance up like a starving man in a buffet.)

David.....if you go to ultralightflyfishing.com , look under step by step fly tying, I also have a written section with pictures there.  Just scroll down a little ways past where I posted the videos...maybe page 2 or 3. There are step by step for a bunch of different flies posted there. I just recently posted the videos.......Don

Thanks Don. I got it - nice idea on the contra-rotation palmer hackle.

Ive done pretty much the same thing, using dubbed bodies or peacock herl (any fly worth the name should include peacock....) Never tried the bi-directional hackle, though.

I also tried to sign up for the website, Maybe they'll like me.

Thanks again

  Yes David, I like to tie with peacock too.......but I had a lot of flies come apart, so I always use a fine wire over the peacock. Peacock makes a great fly body....I am not very good with dubbing....I can do it

but it seldom comes out looking like something I would want to put on the web...........Don
