That’s a nice clear video. For my own flies though I like to leave the butt ends sticking up because it helps keep the fly up when waking them back.
Same here. I love to have butt ends... I even leave tags when usinh cdc.
But, this is not a bad technique to know.

Agreed. Knowing when to twist or untwist thread is another solid bit of tying skill that everyone should develop.
