Great combination of materials, Scott. Is that wing "tented"?

Trimmed out the center quill at the tip, then tied in and pulled to length; in this case, the "gathered" fibers look like a tented wing. Completely unintentional on my part; blind squirrel meets acorn.

Whatever the technique, the result is excellent.

Outstanding job for a "blind squirrel"... (friendly humor)

Another gorgeous fishing pattern. I will be dragging out Terry's book again this weekend. ;)

ScottP. Howdy;

Excellent job by the Blind Squirrel, and you for the remainder ... teamwork.
Wish we had decent squirrels out here, majority just look and act like overgrown
chipmunks ... :roll:
