Nice rendition! A question... "fluey part" looks like what we would commonly call the "webby" part here in the States. Is that right? Or is that the really fluffy stuff way at the base like you would find on the aftershaft?

David,

 

The fluffy barbs near the base, which offer marabou-like movement.

 

Cheers,

Thank you Hans... I should have been able to see that. And I think some of my older tying books actually use that term, now that I think about it, though I haven't heard it in quite a while. Thanks for the help!
