#1 you don't
#2 you can't
#3 it is impossible
But seriously, I hang a plastic grocery bag on the vice and try to do as much cutting therein as I can. But yeah, it is messy.

As for proportions, it's the old A.K. Best 100 dozen rule. A.K. says he has to tie 100 dozen before he's really satisfied he's got it. I'm sure you'll get it before 100 dozen.

I just wet the tips of my fingers and stroke the feather between my thumb and forefinger. A little water goes a long way.

I was wondering why some of those jig flies I got from you felt damp lol

I'm not Catholic but I wonder if using some of that Holy Water would help catch more fish.
