Thanks, Glenn. As far as tracking and spinning, there are two things that keep the fly behaving properly. First, the bulk of the materials are tied on top of the tube, with only limited materials beneath. That helps it stay upright and not flop to the side. Second, the hook is secure in one of two ways that fixes the fly on the leader without any spinning. There is a tapered silicone hook holder at the back of the (see the first picture), and you can either snug the hook eye right into that holder, or tie a loop note and snug the knot itself into the holder. Either way, there's no spinning.
