how does ones make a proper throat,wrapped and pulled down...  Mine are not sitting right, shall I wrap back from eye or wrap from body and then pull down?

I get some which I think turn out nicely and others a cut up.....

Mike Radencich  has a tutorial on his method. He ties the hackle in by the tip with shiny side up then folds the hackle barbules as he wraps toward the eye. (collar style) then pulls all the barbules to the underside of the hook. This is the method that I use for presentation flies but I cheat on my fishable flies and cut the tip out and loosely wrap the thread 2 turns around the racus of the feather on the bottom of the hook then pull the hackle until it is the right length then cinch it tight.

That's how I usually do it to Brian, maybe i am too fussy, sometimes it seems to pull down right, other times it's a pain.....

There is an alternative to the wrapped/pulled down throat process which I document here:  http://theriverscourse.blogspot.com/2013/02/tying-celtic-beauty.html

I haven't used a wrapped/pulled down throat in years.  I use that method exclusively, and I've never had a salmon complain yet.

Gary thanks for sharing. This is the method that I was trying to explain. Started using it after a chat with you on this forum last year.

I use Gary's method also, I sometimes use two feathers if I want it thick. Sometimes if I want it really thick and up the sides abit I tie a collar and use micro tips to just trim off the top and then tie in my wing on top. I can seldom do the pull down method without making a head bigger than I like.

Chris, I use two feathers almost all the time.  Exception might be a really sparse low-water tie.  I definitely always use two on flies like the Celtic Beauty.
