Good day all!

Tied on an vintage bronze 6/0 .Been working on this the past couple days. Ripped the wing off once and rebuilt using some turkey I had to  dye up to complete it. I don't often tie this big, Back to smaller flies now tongue.png.

Yes you did. I may have to do a full featherwing on them as my swan is no where near long enough. Was gonna try a Butcher but see issue above,lol. They are a lovely hook but huge

I'm with everyone, on this, however as Giles said "Even at 6/0 its a lot to get on a hook" so that might not be the next pattern I'll get him to dress - well just yet, anyway...

Thanks everyone!. There is alot going on in this pattern. The Gp red spears(underwing was a challenge, stems are hard and not  pliable. Still was able to keep the head to a desired size.

Chris

For large stemmed feathers such as Argus, spears, macaw coverts and such I take mine and sand one side of the bare stem with my dremel. Tape the dremel to your work surface with a fine grit drum sandpaper hold the feather in the left hand and lower the bare stem down to the disk. Using your right hand index finger apply pressure to the stem and disk. By using your index finger you definitely will not sand to much.

But be careful, I'm the guy that leaned on a hot burner when dyeing stuff.
