    Although cock pheasant tail fibers have that special something, like peacock, the hen fibers are nicely marked and worth using.

    I can't believe you've mutated a Teeny Nymph as you have :D

    Nice variations of a PT. I need to tie some of those with my shellback technique that I've gone nuts about :)

    I "guess" those are okay... Only one way to tell for sure. Send me 2 of each, and I'll get back to you.
