Re: Picric dyed hare's mask

Bill,
That Cornish Hen skin is beautiful! I can see many substitutes tucked away in this gorgeous skin! And, the wings are included along with most of the neck where so many of those small hackles live! Thanks for bringing this to us! I like it!

Re: Sneck bend hooks.

Tom,
I agree with Roadkill! Yours is a great looking pattern! Snipe and Purple! It doesn't get much better than this!
I also like the look of the Sneck Bend Hooks! Something just pops with this hook! It says, "look at this iron!"
