Default Re: ...HELLLLLLLLLLP! Wooley Bugger hackle!

You can skip palmering the entire body and tie the hackle in as a collar or a more difficult route would be to split your thread open and slide the feather into the gap and cut off the stem so the hackle barbs are the length you want then spin your thread bobbin to tighten it all up and palmer the body brushing the fibers back as you go. It'll be fairly sparse and take some time but it'll save a trip to the shop and some cash.
