Ard...

Nice fly . You struck the melancholy chord with me with the French embossed and oval tinsels...kinda like sheet metal working the real tinsel ain't it ?

Hope you find your barred WD. I'd have the same problem if I was to look for real tinsel on the wood turned spools in my "all over the house" stash haha. Sometimes the hunt for material you know you got will drive me crazy. I've been known "to heck with it" and run to the fly shop to get what I need or mail order the stuff.

Silver Doctor blue is a favorite of mine. Can't wait to see it !

Hey Buddy,

There's a fly drying in the vise now, I didn't find the duck. Weird, I have a box of it, I mean enough to make people wonder why I would have it........... Lots of the big stuff from domestically raised Woodies too. I was on a tear about 5 - 6 years ago and bought up enough to last till I die but don't have a clue where I put the box.

I got tired of looking and used folded Tragopan Pheasant for the tail and changed the scarlet red in the collar to Claret. I think I like this version even better. Once the head dries up I'll snap a photo and then start another. You know how this works, right, If you tie only one too bad for you if for some unknown reason you can't keep the fish off the fly.

I figure the third one will be about right

I took up upland game shotgunning especially for the purpose of fly tying materials. Wood Duck was primo and I never did bag one. I do have a lot of mallard quill though which will last me till death. The family hated all those ducks I brought home to eat. Now that the kids are older they like my cooking a lot better.They'd be happy if I cooked a duck for them nowadays.

Woodduck flank has always been a feather that just talks a "fly" to me and the barred flank too.....
