Fly Tying: Assume The Position (Sweep Back the Hackle)

A Rare, Tidy SwittersB Thread Head

To finish off a fly, the materials (usually hackle fibers) are swept back away from the eye of the fly, exposing and area that becomes the thread head. The fingers  (usually thumb, forefinger and middle finger or the less efficient thumb and forefinger ) are used to form a triangle or pinch of sorts, which gathers and sweeps the fibers to the rear. It often takes a few attempts to gather all the fibers and sweep them back with the off-bobbin hand.
