Thanks for all input!
Hi schlemoc,

I think we might need a little more information. I am not sure what you mean by "binding up". What type of fly are you tying?

Dry fly hackle is stiff and has little or no web. Wet fly hackle is soft and has a lot of Web. Dry fly hackle is thin and long and wet fly hackle is shorter and wider.

Here is a link showing how to wrap a dry fly hackle video.
