Thanks guys. By doubling of the peacock...I assume you mean using two slips per side. No this isn't necessary. Peacock wing is actually an amazing feather as it stays together quite well when tying in, is easy to shape, and is pretty tough overall. The key limitation to using it is the length...... this was tied on a 2/0 Kirby bend blind eye.
