Nice Jay's Norm looks like the whole flock. Don't see those tied everyday. Nice classic wets from both you and Scott.

A family friend saved some pheasant feathers for me from a recent hunt.  I put some to use last night on a little carp/panfish bug.

I discovered Simi Seal and it's now my favorite material!  Well, not quite, but I'm not sure how this escaped my attention for so long.  By the way, LMB love rubber leg tails on buggers.

Congrats on the Renzetti.  I've been using one almost 10 years now and love it!
