Re: Just in Golden Plover

I am jealous! I have some golden plover feathers on the way but just a handful. I am on the waiting list at Cookshills. I have been tying soft hackles for over 40 years and have never used golden plover but some of the great flies on this forum got me motivated. I hope you received a great skin!

Re: Golden Plover

Re: Pheasant Tail & Plover

Great fly! Your flies are giving me motivation to brave the bitter cold and buy a new lamp for my fly tying desk. The effect of the golden plover is very life-like and a hackle not in my inventory.

Re: Pearsall's Thread

This is the first I have heard of this and I just went wild buying on several websites. I believe I will have enough of my favorites for years to come.
