Condor

Soft hackle

Body - Condor quill barb*
Hackle - Starling

*I used actual condor quill barb but gray goose or swan are acceptable substitutes. Back in the 1980's it was readily available.

I’ll have to stick with the substitute stuff.

What a rare treat to see the real deal. Thanks for sharing Norm.

Back in February of 2019 a group of Flymphers gathered at a row of tables at Fly Fest in livingston Manor.
Therow was tying with condor on some of his vintage hooks and he gave me a small section of quill and a
fly or two. Bill Shuck was there and also gave me a few of his amazing ties which turned out to be some of
the last he would tie. Those flies and the condor quill are now in a special "collector box" with my
Darbee, Dette, Gartside, and Betters stuff that I didn't fish.

Nice tie Norm and thanks for the memory.
