Re: peacock herl
Peacock Herl and Flashabou, are both great materials that can add a little zing to your ties. I have to agree that Herl is number one though, don't leave home without it. Heck, you can catch fish with a hook wrapped in peacock herl and nothing else - especially when midges are hatching.
