Next a snipe lesser covert feather. Like the starling the barbs move easily in the water.

Similar to snipe.. on this fly I used two Jackdaw head feathers, and like snipe the barb's movement is very good.

That starling fly is gorgeous. A Skues' Iron Blue Nymph, which features starling hackle, is one of my favorite flies when BWOs are on the menu. This one is bone dry, but it looks quite delicious, in a trouty sort of way, when wet.
