A great place to discuss various patterns and tying methods for wingless wet flies, Yorkshire spiders, Flymphs and other patterns tied with soft hackles.

Can't go wrong with plover, one of the best soft hackle feathers I know of. As Steve's pattern attests :roll: , it works as well with synthetics as it does with naturals.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

joaniebo, Howdy;

I believe that it's Illegal to import Polar Bear into the U S of A. from any direction :cry:

Take a look at Cookshill's Facebook page and look at the Golden Plover skins that were available (they're all taken already). I believe that Steve Cooper may also have some snipe availabe in a limited quantity.
