    That stone would be great in the faster riffles and pocket water out here.

    Thanks again folks, it is a fun fly to tie, but my wife doesn't like the smell of the burning feathers so I have to do it outside, but hey just a small sacrifice!
    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'll try to do a couple of pictures door you in the morning.
    Use a wingburner to sandwich the feather between the two metal shapes then use a lighter to burn around the outside edges of the form.
    I use a pair of hemostats to flatten the stem. Like I say though I will do a photo for you in the morning.
