    Chris I picked up some woodcock from a fellow in England who sells alot of game bird feathers. The woodcock and orange looks like there is something under the soft hackle? Or is it just a couple of wasp of hackle? Thanks Chris, great flies!
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    I second that request!
