Sorry, I didn't see this cause I am out of town.
Using sprayed turkey feathers, I tie some in, Crimp it down with some tweezers just below the tie in point, and pull the turkey tail fibers up and over the tweezers. Hold it down on top of the tweezers with my left thumb and tie it down. I'm sure there are better ways, but I found it to be pretty easy after you've sprayed them with an enamel or urethane.
