Francophile's tuck and crimp method works perfectly and leaves no residue to catch road debris and salt. It also maximizes the space between the tire and the fender and reduces the chance of a stone or such like jamming between them. I've used that method on two bikes and it is perfectly clean, elegant and serviceable with the advantage of being easily reversible, if ever necessary.
