A bit different look than with the traditional flanking flank feathers. This one's a bit unruly; I'll chalk that up to a thicker quill stem on the mallard (or I just screwed this one up). Tried a few options for the body (marabou, wound saddle feather) but liked the rabbit best; weighted shank optional.

hook - Mustad 9671 #4
thread - Danville 6/0 black
body - cross-cut rabbit yellow
wing - mallard flank
hackle - hen grizzly


Regards,
Scott
