I am sure you have mastered the art of the post by now. Just wanted to add a couple of tips about securing the hackle to the post: (1) make sure you wind each turn of the hackle under the previous turn (start about mid-post with your winds); (2) once the fly is finished, place a small drop of head cement (I use Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails - cheap alternative) at the top of the first wind. This will prevent the hackle from sliding up the post, even after several fish have eaten it.
