Well done Matey
Yes it is jackdaw crown,we were using it last night to tie up some spider patterns, it is the best hackling material I have ever used for spiders and the olive colour really comes out great.
We also used it for tying in legs on a few hares ear nymphs and it looks deadly.
I will put a few photos on later as I am away now to a duck shoot ,this week we are shooting 450 mallard so I should get a good stock of bronze mallard and CDC .:icon_smil
