The Tail, Oregami Wing and Collar Hackle all come from the same single Whiting Coq De Leon Hen Feather.......The body is segmented 1MM closed cell foam doubled over and hackled with a brown hen feather from a different cape......and some CDC is wrapped in around the collar. It floats nicely and doesn't twist my tippet around. I tied a smaller black version of this and used it on the Farmington River in CT. this past Saturday to imitate the early black stones. I had a few violent and aggressive surface takes which was fun.
