How many hackles do you end up using?
6-8?

2-5 on each flank, maybe 1-3 on dorsal surface on the larger baitfish, using 6,7, 8 WF to throw. Pete may be using a 10 weight to throw his, but then his baby Albies are bigger than most of our trophy size specimens.

You and Kenduardo have me thinkin' about a phuzzie lapstrake notion and doing another pictorial StepByStep...

I tend to mull the creative process over in my head and then make it happen in the Jawz...

Stand by for news... Photos at eleven... Soonerorlater... 

'something like this from my wayback machine...

LOL  No offense taken, FRn.  Everybody has a fault ... preferring barbless hooks is a prevalent one on this site.

It's cold n' wet and my headz not in the SBS game...

on hindsight, 'could have used another phlank pheather on port and starboard...

the empty head effect would have been better camouflaged... it'll phish...!

That last picture!
With your permission, it’s my new iPad wallpaper.

Fly is cool too. I am starting to have some phuzzy notions myself.
How about a sparse fox hair clump, top and bottom that would fill that void in between the hackle?

Mr B... Cheeerz... Have at it... Stripah Cheeekz... closer = better [except for snakes]... 

Sparse fox or buck tail... maybe one more darker phlank pheather... gap be gone...

I'll often "contemplate" a phly design for DAZE before it actually materializes... it's the "process"...

Thanks.
I noticed something is wrong with Photobucket. When I click on your picture, it spits an error.

Not very well versed in hackle... Don’t recognize the top. Are the flanks chinese cape or similar?

Photobucket OK at this end...

 

I'm pheather challenged as well... a salt water buck tail knuckle head, that's me...

Always looking into the bins at shows for colors and textures... 

The Bear's Den is my shopping ground zero now... they have everything I need, and more!

'was part of the Kenny Abrames flat wing movement way back when...

and have my share of long hackles...

more recently have gravitated to Whitting COQ DE LEON in white or pardo or ginger...

that's what I'm mostly using in my current tying...

Ha! Funny that the token Spaniard in the forum did not recognize Gallo de León...

Maybe the Photobucket issue is on mobile devices:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in /mnt/den2-pri1-mnt/code/code/pb-htdocs/public/galleryd/mobile.php on line 936

I have the photo bucket problem on both iPad and iPhone while my desktop was working properly, so I suspect Bimini is correct

Here is hoping that you believe imitation is the sincerest form of Phlattery.  Those last two just moved up to the top on my LCA Magic to-do list
