    Marty,

    Glad to see you got my Orange Herons. As I mentioned in the note included with them, they are on #3 AJ Spey Hooks, which are my favorite size for them.

    Tail - Peacock Swords
    Body - Purple SLF
    Rib - Medium Flat Silver Tinsel
    Hackle - Orange Shlappen
    Collar - Yellow Schlappen
    Wings - Purple Goose Shoulder

    Done, and in the mail. I tied General Practitioners instead of Sol Duc Speys. EDIT: I guess I should have said ready for the mail, Marty I need your address.
