"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson
There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

Soft fluffy feathers work great for crab, shrimp and baitfish patterns when done in the seaducer style
Add some mono eyes and a couple pieces of round rubber at the back hackles at the bend and you have a good shrimp imitation, one hackle feather at either end (bend and eye)and mono eyes in the middle and you have a sideways crab, split short hackles, mono eyes and some marabou at the bend and you have a crab also.

...A word to the wise...be careful with that one feather. If it proves to be useful then of course you will have to pull another from the comforter to have a matched pair, but the odds of finding a match with only one other feather is fairly low, soooo...now you are digging around in the comforter trying to find a mate for it. Before long you have a big pile of "tying Material", and empty comforter and an angry wife. Take Care, Tony
And don't get me started with tales of using hair pilfered from our Pomerainian. Both the dog and the wife were ticked off at me.
