Default feather question

when you rig a hook onto a feather do you tie a loose knot so the hook swings and then apply a crimp, or do you recommend to go through the hook with the leader and just place a crimp? If you use a knot prior to the crimp what knot do you use Thank you

Do a double crimp (use two). One as high as you need it so that the hook doesnt pull all the way up to the top of the lure and the other just above the hook itself. If you like, you can place a bead above the higher crimp to aid in holding it in place.
