    Default I Need a Prescription.................

    I was walking down the gangway to the dock today and I saw a female Eider duck emerge from an underwater foraging expedition.

    I immediately started thinking; let's see, speckled brown feathers, soft Eider down pillows, soft webby hackles: ......................that's a soft hackle for stillwaters!.....................

    There are tons of rabbit road kills around here. You know what we can do do with them.
    If you find one, please let me know.

    The prescription, I'm afraid, is another addiction: it starts with a Fed Duck stamp and a 12 guage and can eventually take over a large portion of your garage and most of your income.

    keep in mind, we all inflicted this illness upon ourselves... and I fear it is incurable... I have to empty all funds form my pockets before entering a thrift store or craft store to keep me from buying a discarded fur collar or an "interesting looking spool of thread, yarn, or beads"

    Wow you are far north-- we get a few eider along the coast during winter. Looks like some excellent feathers--

    Not sure that there's a cure for what you've got though-- and this forum is
    probably exactly the wrong forum to ask for advice -- (he says from a desk strewn with feathers and animal body parts).

    I'm afraid the epidemic is worldwide as I took my sixteen month old grand daughter Jessica to nearby Chester Zoo last month and every time I saw a bird or animal all I could think about was how I could make use of their feathers or hair. Terrible addiction!

    Ya, I know. I was making a concerted effort to think about other things, but while patting one of our Basset Hounds last night, I started thinking: "I wonder how long it will be before he blows his coat again; would make an interesting dubbing mix..........."

    Ouuuuuuuuuu..........

    When I saw the title, all I could think of was Christopher Walken saying, "I've got a fever, and the only prescription... is more cowbell!"

    And yeah, I plan on providing turkey feather, duck feather, hare's mask, and deer fur as much as I can, assuming I don't spend my time chowing down on tag soup due to fishing too much.... I tried tying some bass plugs when i was down visiting my parents since there are none sold by stores around my parent's house, and for feathers I borrowed some colorful ones off a random mardi gras or party boa that was in the garage, haha.
