hackle - partridge


mash barb, slide on bead; start thread, wrap to bend

How did I miss this earlier?! It must have been posted when I was away.

Brilliant combination of materials, and beautifully executed fly. Inspiring, as always.

I want to steal flies from your box some day. Heck, I'd probably steal the whole dang box. You've been warned... :twisted:
