Could you post a picture of the skin? I’d love to see the range of feathers the skin offers.
I have the image on Instagram as well.

capercaillie hen for fly tying

Re: Availability of Spider Materials To

I don’t know this first hand but it is my understanding that many of the birds used in fly tying were available whole at food markets in England in the past.

In my tying descriptions I usually reference to his work as he has researched and explained much more in detail why such patterns work so well. I believe it is a further development from the deer hair emerger, which has dr...
