Woody breast feathers for fan wings.  The lil white is what makes the white spots on the Drake’s breast.   Woody flanks and Gadwall breasts for fan wings too.

My first trout on the fly was at the age of 12 and I remember my leader landing into the form of a pile on the water with my Black Gnat landing in the center of that mess. A lovely and beautiful 12 In brook trout decided that his life was no longer worth living and he decided to impale himself on my hook. It was in short order that I had that beautiful fish resting at my feet on the gravel bar I was standing on and the rest was history.
