  1. Who ever figured this out is a genius. I loosely heard the idea thrown around and just decided to google it. Anyway i pulled out some nasty twisted and horrible GP Crest i have and instead of fighting it as usual i took some feathers off and waved them over the steam from the kettle, it was like some sort of magic, not only did the crest straighten up perfectly but it seemed to 'puff up'. Stunning! Next i took some beat up flies from my fishing box that had been put back all wet and have dried into some twisted ball of hackle and wing. Hahaha they came back to life how i had tied them. Interesting! The GP crest i can probably use now! I have a question tho, after the process of steaming and tying the feathers in, after u have fished with them will they go back to the twisted state or the steamed state? Like once it is steamed and straight it will stay like that after tying in?
