Mike W next time we are in a swap together remind me to send you a piece of deer hair. I picked up a section of body hair say a show for 30 cents ance it is by far the best I have ever used for this kind of pattern.

Will do...Thx

Adam,
Nice job

Some bottom bouncers I put a small piece of foam in tail in hopes it will float the end a
little bit,not sure if it will work or not

I like that idea.  What if you just cut a strip of hide with deer body hair and glued that on?  Got me thinking now...

Tied a Pat Cohen type deerhair bird, but a duckling! Took 5 sittings & i never ty sober! Scandinavian rule! Atleast Finland & Sweden! Well most, to my noledge!

 


That's some serious work! Good job. Would hate to lose that one. Around here, a chicken hawk may grab that thing in mid flight.

Peacocks on the brain. I have to take the one and a half hour ride south to Miami for some training Tuesday. Hopefully classes get out early enough to hit a canal or 2 before heading home.  A peacock has always been a bucket list fish for me.  I'll only be a few miles from the airport lakes and canals. Hopefully it's a short class.

The class ran late in Miami.  I didn't get out till after 4pm..so I only had time for a couple casts before the drive home.  Luckily that was all I needed.  Still got home before dark. Mission accomplished!

Congrats.  Nothing like a business/fishing trip with a good conclusion.
