Very interesting...JackDaw feathers?  We got crows; used to shoot em. Got decoys, calls, and owl decoy.  I’m on a mission.  Never saw those feathers on one.  Jackdaws are European but look like ravens/crows.  Trying to figure out where those feathers are on their bodies.

Did you dub the fluffs or this is a wrapped feather?  

Both peacock and jackdaw are wound. The thorax area is wrapped peacock.

Great looking looking fly!  Is it a classic North Country spider and does anyone know who the creator is?
