Piker20, that material is Spirit River UV Guinea, those feathers with the spots on them, and just one or two turns for a collar *edit i should say 1 side of the feather was stripped here*...The longer purple is that heron substitute. I am seeing on the market now a lot of 'UV' treated materials, i also picked up UV marabou from the same company, pretty good stuff.

Cheers for that. The spirit river stuff isn't available too much in UK and the postage from the states on the websites I just checked was 4x the cost of the feathers. I'll keep an eye out in the stockist for their stuff here.

Couple more recent ties. I'm having a devil of a time getting my camera focus on point. I really need to just bite the bullet and get a dslr and ditch the point and shoot I'm using.

Yeah its a pain. Check the tips in the photography thread. The macro extension tubes give you quality enough for posting fly pics without spending hundreds on dedicated macro lens. Someone (apologise can't remember who) on the fly forum posted a pic taken with his Fuji 9600 point and shoot set on macro and they look great.

The above picture was taken with a Coolpix L120. It's a point and shoot with a long lens, cost is pretty reasonable. It has an internal zoom and a focal length of down to less than a half inch.

Not that I'm holding the picture up as a fine example of photograhpy, it's not, but a better photographer with better preparation could likely take a much better picture using the same equipment.

A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.
