    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.

    Mine have been done since last week but I've been traveling with work so I haven't got them out yet. I will get them in the mail tomorrow or the next day.

    I tied a Nemesis:

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