Take an English Partridge hackle and strip the waste fluff and unwanted fibres from the stem. (Any hackle and colour can be used, English partridge is just my preference).

Take your hackle pliers or a pair of tweezers and hold the end of the hackle where the stem is narrowist and pull the fibres back with your thumb and forefinger so they pull horizontal to the stem, leaving the tip ready for tying in.
