BWO Soft Hackle

Post by Ron Eagle Elk » Tue May 07, 2019 10:18 pm

This is really just a test. Trying out imgbox as a hosting site. The BWO is tied on a Mustad 94840 size 18, Hackle is starling, Thread is Sheer 14/0 in Olive, Ribbed with Primrose Pearsall's Gossamer silk. Let me know if there is a problem with the image.

The photo is there, REE, but it's the thumbnail. You need to left click on it in imgbox to get to the "full size" version and then click on "Save image address" for that.

Ron, it is okay... less ads on my iPhone than on my desktop. You know you can upload photos on the forum, so you don't have to link them?

If you upload the photos to the forum they stay with the forum. Otherwise, if you use a 3rd party image host and you cancel your account or they go defunct we lose the image in the thread.

Nice BWO soft hackle.

Johnno, If you mean this one, it's a Jack Gartside design called the "wet mouse". The whole thing is Cock Pheasant aftershaft feathers wrapped around the tying thread and wrapped on the hook shank.
