Found the flank feather while taking a walk in the neighborhood; light years better than the crappy teal.


hook - Dai Riki 899 #6
thread - Danville 6/0 black
rib - small wire silver
body - tinsel silver
hackle - hen badger
underwing - peacock herl
wing - mallard flank

Scott

Steve's teal, is about as good as you'll find, anywhere. Been there & bought some recently, however his widgeon & pintail select are both on a planet of their own.

Do a search on ebay for Teal Plucks ... the guy has great matched sets of waterfowl.

I like this pattern and low wing.

Royce,

Thanks for the tip; they look to be good quality and cheaper than a full skin ($50 + shipping!!).

Scott
