    Unless I'm tying buggers.. my short fat polish fingers are too big to hold any hackle by hand for anything under #10.. try using 2 Vienna sausages as hackle pliers and you'll get the idea

    The brown hackles arent the best either, but new 'dry fly hackles' on order, so all will be corrected soon enough.

    Very nice looking tie! I just made an informational video for YouTube related to quill wings; feel free to give me any comment, as well. I have made over a dozen instructional videos, and love comments to help them become better in the future.
