My use for "scrap" feathers

Post by Boarmountain » Sun Nov 11, 2018 8:52 am

My soft hackle sculpin. I use the mini schlappen for the body hackle as it gives a nice taper.

Mike, beautiful! What is the collar hackle. I am looking for night time flies like this for brown trout fishing on my freestone home waters.

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.
