I've been working on some wet flies and been having difficulty of setting a good wing. I've been using pheasant tail, you know the smaller ones in a clump. Some come out ok, but most seem to fold up while tightening. Been using text book methods, but wondering if there are better feathers to use for a beginner like me. What I'm looking for is an easy to set feather for classic wet flies mainly around the size of 12. I hear all different types work for wet fly wings, but looking for one that will set the easiest without costing an arm and a leg. color not too important now as I'd rather get technique down before matching colors. Thank you, Jeff
