excellent stuff right there!    Gray Hackle Peacock, as you tied with either a red tail or with a grizzly tail are two of the first flies I learned as a kid after the woolly worm.    Learning to handle peacock herl was a step toward material control.    Just as effective with trout and panfish today as they were 100 years ago or more.
