Almost went with a married wing (thinking royal blue and kingfisher blue in alternating three fiber bands, topped by natural turkey), but when I sized up the Peacock as a wing, it spoke to me. And I love Peacock "hackles" and I know fish do too. Anyway...I think it's pretty fun. I think the tall wing will flutter quite will in the water. I may tie it taller next time. Less aesthetic, but probably more action on the swing. Photo Jan 25, 10 17 30 AM.jpg
