ShadKing, just do a reply and post the PDF man... I'm running word 2k3 and about to hang it up for the night so I'm not down for downloading installing etc (if the add-in is even compatible with 2003...) :) But if you got it post it man. Cheers.

Big soft hackle fan. Preston thanks for tip regarding feather size. Most of my soft hackles are 14 or smaller and difficult to find small feathers

I looked at this a couple of months ago and filed away the idea, then came back to it today, using one of my many "too large" teal flank feathers.

This one is tied on a size 12 Dia-Riki 270. Once I get the proportions consistently right I'll drop to 14s.

I also used Preston's suggestion from a sample fly photo I submitted last week and cut this one down in file size.
