    I made this one for a co-worker, its a Aldington & Hutchinson 7/0 blind eye hook with a 2 strand silk gut eye....... IMG_2132.JPG I had to turn it diagonal to get it into the baseball display case....
    Any Thoughts are much appreciated.

    Amazing! What is the eyed wing feather? I've not seen one before.

    Its a Malayan Pheasant Peacock.......the first time I saw this feather was in Judith Dunham's book in the early ninetys where she featured Bob Verveka's "3 eyed monster".....back then the feathers were not available to regular tiers....Now they are a bit more available, especially on the internet......but they are not cheap. They are beautiful.
