Had to flex some other muscles besides crest wings. Stripped a hook, re-japanned the paint, and tied this for a friend. Prawn orange and olive blended seal with two tinsels in the rear half, green and olive blended seal with on tinsel, BEP hackle and a heron collar in front.

Top shelf tying and hook work.
I wish I could claim the build of the hook, its a Ronn Lucas 5/0 WM B&S +3/4 inch hook that the finish was damaged by a friend who I had tied a crest wing for. I couldn't let it rest gouged like it was... The Japan recipe can be purchased on AO feathers website, its a great recipe for sure.
