Part III

Select some Amherst pheasant centre tail fibres to make up 4 small bunches each bunch has 2 fibres each of natural, hot orange & deep red. Change the tying thread to red

Tie in and trim each of the bunches of Amherst fibres, quartered around the tube

This shows the Amherst bunches in place

Select a matched pair of JC eye feathers and tie in between the Amherst bunches

After the second JC is tied in, the head is finished with #4 Glo-Brite floss (bright red), and varnished

Slight wetting & sweeping of the finished tube fly gives an impression of what the overall silhouette may appear like during the swing

Take only photographs, retain only memories, leave only a good impression of yourself, perhaps just footprints.

Your lines, your rivers, your way!
