Most of the water I like to fish isn't that fast....so I just go with the bead, add weight when I'm on the water. as for the tails...at the bend of the hook I tie in a small piece of peacock, just a couple of wraps, the put my biots on the sides, this spreads them apart, and you can control just how spread they are by how close to the " ball" of peacock you wrap the biots down.I also use gold wings....just depends on the time of year, but I have had alot of fish with the gold/yellow wings...as seen here
I hope this shows better..
