How the heck do you tie the wing in on these??
An example is the "last chance" fly....

Anyone have any tips on tying in the wing to give it that nice bend?

That is a difficult technique at first. You need the right kind of feather, and you need to take the quill slip from the correct part of the feather. Here is a nice step by step by Loren Williams. Do a search for quill slip wings and it will turn up lots more.
