Took the night off last night, made up for it tonight. I am mostly still working the same 3-4 patterns I have learned, trying to really get a lock the basic skills.

Gray dun

Tied a gray dun tonight! First real success I have had with hackle feathers. Pretty happy with how it came out. Also tied a shwaf and a few others I have already done once. I am getting a better idea of what I need. Blue dubbing, blue thread, pheasant tail feather. Curved point scissors would be helpful. Still fighting the small sized whip finisher, really need to get a normal sized one.

Also, I am trying to get some of the turkey hunters I know to pitch in some feathers when they take a bird this year and donate them to Project Healing Waters. That's it for tonight.

I raided my kids craft supplies and found some lengths of rigid yarn. It works like no-dub I think I. Tied and emerging nymph and a red SHWAPF.
