Riseform, Nice softie. What hakle is that?

Sorry, folks, I know I haven't given this thread the attention it deserves. I arrived at my summer job in West Yellowstone on the 15th. Started setting up the fly shop for the season. Wound up in the hospital in Bozeman with Pneumonia. Am now back in WA, just released from the VA hospital at American Lake. I'll try to do better.

Wow, Ron, hope you're on the mend! A number of my co-workers ended up with pneumonia during the last month. Mean bug out there.

Sorry to hear about the pneumonia, that's always scary when it requires hospitalization. I'm glad you're out and improving. Is a summer job in W. Yellowstone a new thing or have you always done that?

As for the hackle, I wish I could give you and honest answer. It was not pulled from a skin, but instead from an unmarked ziplock bag of loose "partridge" soft hackle feathers that I've had for so long I can't remember where or when they were purchased.
