    I found that if your hackle is brittle and stiff and doesn’t want to wind nice and straight around the hook shank, take a pot of boiling water and hold the cape or saddle in the steam for a few minutes. Sometimes it helps to bring it back to life.

    Yes, and if it doesn’t work you can make tea with the boiling water.
