For the Tail Biots on the Prince or Stoneflies,
I hold both together, splayed in an "X" pattern, at about a 45 degree angle to each other,
with more of the slender/pointy part pinched between my thumb and index finger,
and the larger ends overlapping each other,extending out of my fingers.
(how much of a size X pattern and overlap depends on the size of the hook).
Tie them in at the "Crossing" of the Biots, and the further you wind back your thread on the hook will determine how much Splay you get.
You can also throw in some figure 8 wraps to get the required separation
If you need,I can post a pic if this isn't clear.
