    I found a bag of claret emu feathers and thought Bugger hackle. Well it works but still needed a Collier of hackle feather.

    Any other emu feather pattern suggestions?

    Here is the fly and the feather IMG_20131125_203609_951-1.jpg IMG_20131125_205031_756-1.jpg

    For salmon, dollies, steelhead - would work great in slower runs tied as an ESL pattern.
