I stumbled across some stripped and dyed peacock
quills that Shane Stalcup gave me more than 13 years ago.

The cool part about it is that they are over 8" long.
I had to try them out along with the different colors.

Wait, why would somebody insult our buddy Norm? That just aint right. That's the internet for you.

 

My Mom told me a long time ago that haters are all just jealous, probably because I was better looking and a better fisherman than themsmile.png .

 

I too would have loved to see a box of those. I'll bet it's purty.

I am so glad I wasn't drinking milk.  I hate it when that stuff squirts out my nose during an unexpected laugh !!!
