Looking for excuses to use some sharptail feathers so I added a front collar.


hook - Mustad 3906 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - brown hackle
rib - small wire silver
abdomen - tinsel silver
thorax - peacock herl
hackle - hen brown (oversize by 2)
collar - sharptail grouse


Regards,
Scott

Excellent rendition, Scott. Make the rib/abdomen gold and you've got a killer March Brown soft hackle.

"Kill Devil" is a great name, and no doubt an accurate description of a lethal pattern. I will be adding some of these to my spring pattern box. Thanks for the inspiration. ;)

Scott,
I agree with the two monkeys above (Bill and Ray). The sharp tail collar is great! I think I could fool some local bluegills just after ice out and there after....when ever that will happen! Wow! It's cold outside today! A great day to tie!

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.
