Named for William Murray, who helped popularize the Adirondack Mountain region of the New York in the 1800's. Instead of matching segments for the wing, I stacked/folded; the stuff seems to have enough adhesion to maintain it's shape.

Is the wing from one slip (folded)? Did you split it after tying? Very neat looking fly. Your work is so very precise.

I took 2 segments, laid on top of each other, folded over the fly and tied in. Go to the 10:00 mark here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=avEB50lyJmM to see how Mr. McPhail does it.

I've never seen that technique before. That's a great idea. Is that a new method for attaching we fly wings?

Not sure how long Mr. McPhail's been using it or it's origin; sorry.  Maybe someone else can provide an answer.
