Beautiful! Got to love the Tup's!
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Otto, this is how I like to tie my Tups soft hackles too. Lately I’ve been using the construction of half buttonhole and half dubbed thorax, but for many years I’ve used the blend in a spun. Body with a honeydun hen hackle. It just looks very enticing. Especially that tips blend. Fantastic.

My pm inbox seems to have lost some of my messages. I’ve just sent out a couple of samples and I have a couple left. If you pm’d me for some and didn’t receive it please try again and you will get it.
