  16. Aligning the tips with calf tail(kips tail) is difficult because the hair is kinky. This works for me: 1. grasp a clump of hair by the tips and putt it at a right angle to the tail and cut right next to the tail 2. still holding the hair by the tips brush out the short underfur.\ 3. still holding the hair by the tips pull out all of the short hair. do not discard the short hair 4. take the stack of longer hair and the stack of short hair and bring them together with all of the tips aligned 5. repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have a good looking stack
  17. Are you using "Catskill" and "classic" as synonyms? Is a hair wing dry fly or a Wulff pattern "classic?/"
