Be on a feather wing kick as of late. Thinking about cold days and colder water. The green but spey is a split wing something that have never tried with a feather wing we’ll see how it swims soon enough!
Smokin' HOT !!!
I would feel very comfortable swinging either of those flies knowing I have an awesome offering
Excellent composition, material placement and material selection is spot on Mr. Nickles !!
The colour combinations are confidence ... very inspiring !!!
I will also say the splayed wings impart a deadly action. I have tied saddle wings modeled after the Light Spruce trout fly that act like Dee strip wings.
Can you PM me a source for these "Chinese" feathers? I like the look of them and good sources are tough around here.

I’m not real sure guys! I think I’ve got most of mine from cabalas and the local tackle shop that has one 4 foot by 6 foot section of fly tying stuff. I tried a search on eBay and didn’t find any I thought that was strange. Maybe I searched the wrong thing?
It has been a while since I bought these. Last batch came from a fly shop in Chicago. So I cannot personally vouch for these, but they should be fine. $12 seems to be about right for "Chinese capes" from a rooster.
