    Already familiar with that site, thanks for the link though.

    Here's the latest.

    A few months ago I invented a streamer for Streamers365 called Korinary
    Last night i gave it the wet fly reduction.
    I kept the same basic colors, but changed the materials somewhat to make the wet fly a little more buggy looking.


    Materials as follows
    Tail: white duck quill
    Tag: silver tinsel
    Body: red Seals fur
    Rib: silver wire, small
    Wing: red and yellow duck quill with guinea quill between
    Hackle: med dun Hebert hen
    Head: black

    Here's the streamer for reference - the name came from the Kori Bustard in the wing, and the yellow color (canary) married to it.

    Eunan, masterful ties as usual! I'm very interested in trying that soft-hackled royal coachman in a much smaller size (14 or smaller) on a particular local stream. Once I'm back in front of my tying table tomorrow, I'll let you know how that tedium goes

    And for the record, the title for your streamer "Korinary" and the inspiration behind it is pretty genius. Hopefully it catches fish worthy of the name

    tip for the wing - The death grip is essential for wings. DONT let go of the wing until you have at least 5 or 6 TIGHT wraps holding it in place.

    This might be the tip that changes my awful wing-slip ties. I was really hating tying muddlers because of this deficiency. I will give your suggestion a try!!
