Re: Hare's Ear, Pheasant Tails & Hackles

For years, I've gathered way too many fly tying materials as I've often searched for materials to tie a dozen or so of a specific dressing and then kept the "extra' materials on hand for heaven knows what future use.

Interesting. When I read the name I was expecting a different color (purple/violet).

I like it. ;)

It’s like the curse for me :x
