I could see it previously, not now. When I right-click on 'image' and try to show the photo I'm taken to another forum with this message: "Apologies! This forum is closed for essential upgrade. Back at 12.00hrs (GMT) 2nd February 2018".

Great looking fly and the Cree looks great! Is that from a Cree hen neck (if there is such a thing)?

No it is from down the sides of a rooster cape. The way it has been cut by Root River has included a few (just a few :( ) spade hackles but quite a few feathers that I guess must make up the root or base of the wing (I think they are called the scapulars?). They are quite soft for rooster hackle so not good for dry flies, however as they had really strong Cree marking I had to use them somehow.
By the way I have seen Cree hen necks and saddles for sale over here in the UK, Toby at Funky Fly Tying had a small number from Charlie Collins.
