Kelson's Black Dog - Well, almost :)

Recommended Posts

Kelson's Black Dog with a lot of substitutions and a lot of mistakes.  :)  

A major mistake about half way through resulted in crowding the eye and I had to skip the wood duck in the wing as a result, but this is the most complex pattern that I've attempted so far and I'm still proud of it.  Warts and all.  :D  

Tag:  Silver tinsel and yellow silk

Tail:  GP topping and red goose

Butt:  Black ostrich

Rib:  Yellow silk with oval silver tinsel on each side

Body:  Black silk and black hackle

Throat:  Same hackle as body

Wing:  Underwing of red-orange hackle, Jungle fowl, then two shades of turkey (sub'ed for bustard and pheasant), red and yellow goose, and a GP topping.  Note: I skipped the wood duck in the wing due to I just ran out of space.
