Scott,

Teach me about the turkey slip. Is it a single layer or folded over? I am not sure of the technique.

Rex,

Here's the winging sequence I used

prep 2 slips of turkey tail (gap width), measure (tips just past tail), fold, tie down (it really helps if you wax the thread; secures it on top and keeps it from torqueing around)/trim
