I've found that if you flatten the JC stems w/ a pair of pliers they behave much better,

Time to move onto the next lesson then, because that looks damned good.  Nice layering of red and olive feathers, and the use of those cock pheasant feathers.  Just great color combo's all around, really nice.

Thank you!  That's very encouraging to hear, since it took hours to crank that thing out.
