Finished this one a couple days ago, went for the streamlined look, which I like and did a built wing which I find more interesting then a plain married wing. Pretty happy with it and is tied on a William Bartleet 3/0 hook I picked up at the ASFI show.
Pat, good question. A built wing is built in layers like a roof, instead of all the slips married together in one wing it has sections layered one on top of the other, overlapping but still visible. This one the colored turkey slips are layered under the the main wing of kori and florican
bustard and GP tail. The hackle is silver badger.
I've used a lot of dark and light badger (brown) for streamers but have honestly never seen the silver badger feathers before. I have no idea why not. Guess I've never tied a pattern that called for us of the feather.
