Re: Red Fox Squirrel - Harvesting Dubbing

That's awesome Doug
I picked up one yesterday in it's prime winter coat without a mark on it.
Almost sent the dog through the windshield when I locked up the brakes.
I'll be doing the same tomorrow when I get home. 8-)

Re: “Peacock & Plover”

Very nice.
Polish quills?
I picked up a few packs last fall to play with but haven't done so.

Re: 2021

Good for you.
My waters are high and a cool 34.
The boat is stored for the winter and
I'm not stepping off the bank until the flows drop.
...and Happy New Year too.

Re: No.62

I don't know if this is true, but I was told that if a "batch" of dyed silk did not pass quality,
it went in the black bath to salvage the run. Heat might have have been an issue too.

John, You're not helping here.
I'm trying to finish up my Christmas shopping and shopping for me is not
what I should be focusing on.

Re: It just looks "buggy"

On my screen, the starling almost looks like it was slightly bleached.
Nice pattern.

Re: Woodcock Undercovert Hackles

Bob,
I have a well plucked skin and might be able to scrounge a few undercoverts in that size.
Let me know if you want a few more and I'll get them out to you.

Re: More Glass Bead Kebari

Lookin' good.
The hackle looks like it was tied in at the hook point with an open spiral to the bead, then collared.
Dubbing counter wrapped through it?
