Re: Generic SH

DUBBN
That has BWO (E cornutella) all over it. They run 16 to 20 and are an important hatch on the
waters that I fish. I'm looking forward to seeing that live and in living color when the swap flies arrive!
Well Done!

Re: Red Fox Squirrel - Harvesting Dubbing

That's awesome Doug
I picked up one yesterday in it's prime winter coat without a mark on it.
Almost sent the dog through the windshield when I locked up the brakes.
I'll be doing the same tomorrow when I get home. 8-)

Very nice.
Polish quills?
I picked up a few packs last fall to play with but haven't done so.

Re: 2021

Good for you.
My waters are high and a cool 34.
The boat is stored for the winter and
I'm not stepping off the bank until the flows drop.
...and Happy New Year too.

Re: No.62

I don't know if this is true, but I was told that if a "batch" of dyed silk did not pass quality,
it went in the black bath to salvage the run. Heat might have have been an issue too.

John, You're not helping here.
I'm trying to finish up my Christmas shopping and shopping for me is not

On my screen, the starling almost looks like it was slightly bleached.
Nice pattern.
