Default Re: How do you hackle your buggers?

I'm with bigjim, I start my hackle in the tail, tip first. Then wrap to the eye. Sometimes I add wire, sometimes a wrap of flashibou/krystal flash, etc. I never tried wrapping from the head back because I've always been pleased doing it as I am. Plus the hackles taper larger at the head to smaller at the bend of the hook.
