Re: Yellow CDL (hen)

Wayne, I think this "affair" will work out just fine for you! The challenge now is to set down at the vice and experiment and then show all of us how good you can make this pelt look! We will be anxious to see what flows out of your den! Awesome find! Maybe a return trip to this shop would...

Re: Midnight Soft Hackle

Bill, That is one delicious looking soft-hackle! That deep red (wine colored?) thread used as the body base is tempting to most of the fish in my area and much appreciated by me!
