Jeff,
You can use an empty prescription bottle to help you stack in the beginning. Thanks for sharing you fly. It looks like it would be a great bass fly and who knows what else will hit it...? Keep up the creative work and I appreciate you posting your design. As far as tying in the hair; do it in controlled sections of the hook. Don't try and do too much at one time. Then, you have to be creative in the trimming part with your scissors. You will have many bad ones at the beginning, but, keep working at it.

Good luck...
