    Big soft hackle fan. Preston thanks for tip regarding feather size. Most of my soft hackles are 14 or smaller and difficult to find small feathers

    You need to learn to read about using all the feathers. :ray1:

    I looked at this a couple of months ago and filed away the idea, then came back to it today, using one of my many "too large" teal flank feathers.

    This one is tied on a size 12 Dia-Riki 270. Once I get the proportions consistently right I'll drop to 14s.

    I also used Preston's suggestion from a sample fly photo I submitted last week and cut this one down in file size.
