I had the same issue. Once it was out of the bag the first time that was it. I put the hammock in its sack, but the fly goes in its own bag now. It helps keep stuff dry if I put the wet fly in its own water resistant bag. Most of the time it is damp in the morning, even if it didn't rain. I use one of the orange sacks from Walmart. If it is really wet I could clip the outside of the pack
this is not true, i pack mine with the snakeskin's. takes more work and isn't quite as small but it fits.

That being said, I just recently changed my strategy... and it's still a work in progress. I switched the snake skins to my tarp, which will still be stored in an outside pocket of the pack for the same reasons.
After installing the HHSS I decided that rather than take all that apart again i would leave it together and then nothing would fit in my stuff sack anyway. So, I just sorta rolled the HH, HHSS and sleeping bag all up together and stuff it into the bottom of my backpack. Sorta like the guy in the HH video, but I did roll it somewhat and tie it a little with the suspension cords. It's not much bigger than the sleeping bag was anyway. I could probably stuff it into a compression sack and shrink it.
I keep my Explorer in snake skins and then I used the original stuff sack for their large fly because I couldn't get the fly back into it's original sack. So to repeat, hammock only in it's snake skins and stuff the rainfly into the hammock sack. Works for me
