That's nice, Scott.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

It looks eager and the head is fine, it suits the overall appearance of business.

A bit stalky with the DR 075; prefer the proportions with a shorter shank. Left the ribbing wire long and wrapped the head with that.

thread - Danville 6/0 black
rib - small wire copper
tail - pheasant tail
body - pheasant rump dyed brown
underwing - pheasant rump dyed brown
overwing - pheasant shoulder dyed brown
hackle - pheasant breast
head - small wire copper

just a question after eyeballing your heads. Did you whipfinish the wire or were you very neat about tucking the cut end down.

Bill,

I did whip finish the wire; a bit of a pain and not something I plan on doing on a regular basis.
