    I am assuming your talking about wet flies because I tie my dries with it sticking straight out. You want to fold the hackle in half with your fingers and then position it so that it faces towards the back you may have to adjust it a few times as you wrap.

      Tie your hackle in by the tip and not the butt. Depending on the direction you wrap your hackle practice with the dull side of the feather up and down.

        If you bend your hackle in half like jsobrien said you will get it to aim back. I will do that with some of my wet flies.
