    Hi Larry
    the body is stripped duck quill the centre spine nicked with a scalpel then peeled off,really tricky technique

    I bet tricky is an understatement - what is really nice though is the width of the abdominal segmentation, which is perfect for the hook and insect....

    Hi Hugh
    Believe me it can be heart breaking , I will put the sbs on how to strip it tomorrow, a good tip is you can either put coloured threads under the quill to get great shades of colour or dye up the quill .

    Laurie: That body looks awesome, but like Hugh says is an understatement and it looks way over my tying capabilities, but looking forward to seeing your SBS on stripping the quill.

    Full credit must go to William Heckel from Chicago for showing me this technique
