Of course stiffer/softer material will behave differently with the water velocity but he contends that what you see in the vise is basically what the fish will see in the water. That a fly does not collapse like the one in your picture until you remove it from the water.
It's a very interesting program on fly design. And not just his streamers
I saw it a couple of years ago and I noticed that he's presenting it again this weekend.
