Now take two cree hackles, line them up together so they appear to be one and secure on the right hand side of the hookshank facing forward of the eye. Do the same to the left hand side of the hookshank with another two cree hackles. Try and make sure that the lengths and widths of the cree hackles are the same for all four feathers. See the photo below to get an explanation of what is trying to be achieved. The reason I use them in pairs is to make the flies last longer.
The last two steps are easy, catch in a red game hackle where the pheasant tail body finishes and wind the hackle up towards the eye. Trim the waste. The very last thing to do before building up a head is to add the final two legs that point forwards of the eye. Catch the two legs in, trim waste, whip finish and varnish the head. One thing that you may like to do is to treat the cree hackles with watershed, this gives them a protective waterproof coating.
