It is a wally wing Dave, I always thought that they looked difficult to achieve, after a couple of goes, they are really not that difficult. A case of tying in the hackle at a desired point near the base with a couple of loose turns, drawing the feather backwards & then tightening the thread when you are satisfied. Trim as necessary.
