    That one is a dandy! I also use embroidery yarn for fly patterns. Now I have to track down some light orange yarn. Look out fabric store, here I come.

    I started tying all my soft hackles with the feather tied in first as you do. I like the technique. Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks:D
