    I am new to tying for Great Lakes steelhead. I was given a package of orange and brown Bird Fur. I need some easy but effective patterns using them. I need very detailed & easy patterns with illustrations/photo's I can easily follow. I am new to tying. Thanks, Ed

    What is bird fur? Are you using artfully descriptive terms for hackle or feathers? If so are you talking about both orange AND brown feathers or rather feathers that are both brown and orange like dyed grizzly hackle?

    :hmmm:
