The 2 most noticeable problems I am having are:
1.) when I tie in the 2 feathers, they look too big for the hook (size 12)...almost like i have tied in 2 giant pieces of marabou. Maybe my CDC feathers are too big for some reason?
2.) If i do get them to look somewhat proportional to the hook size, the lengths of the barbs are all different and not uniform. Steve Yates wings looked so uniform, I could have sworn it was hair that had been put in a stacker.

Also I was wondering if people tie in one cdc feather, then tie the other one seperatly, and adjust them together. Or if they are just stacked on top of each other and tied in.
