I walk my dogs 3 to 5 miles every day, following my philosophy of a tired dog is a good dog. This winter it's been snowshoes every day, for months now. One of the things I really enjoy about the winter is the evidence of our neighbors- tracks in the snow. We have a healthy population of coyotes, turkey, Hawks, owls, deer, small birds, cottontails, and all kinds of little rodents.

But today, the pups and I came across the remains of a turkey, feathers the only thing remaining. As I collected a few choice samples, it occurred to me it would the basis of a fun tying challenge.

So here's the South Lima Steelhead Society tying challenge-

Three materials required-
1- oval or flat tinsel
2- floss or braid
3- A natural, found material- the lint trap on your dryer, or your dog or cat don't count. Something found outside- feathers, fur, whatever else you can think of- spiderweb?

Ad anything more you want to the list, but those three are the requirements.

Due date- April 1st. I'll have a small prize for the winner.

And does it count if they came off an animal on the farm or are we talking wild feathers scrounged? I like this idea, should be fun to see what people come up with!

I just swapped out toothbrushes, so I could probably do that, but I had another SLSS product in mind. Details to follow.

And farmyard counts in my book. Never met a farmer or a dancer who could get by working indoors.

Living in north americas 4th largest city i just went to the street to see what i could find..

Bad attitudes
One small blue left mitten
Used syringe
4 drunk hobos
1 hub cap, probably toyota
A whole lotta garbage
3 pigeons but they were eating defrosting puke

Then i got distracted by a band playing the blues on my corner.

Not sure i want to touch anything. Maybe Chase's spoon would go with some of these items.

You city fellas haven't had to scrounge recently enough.

Maybe go to a park. Chase is showing the spirit!

Three materials required-
1- oval or flat tinsel
2- floss or braid
3- A natural, found material- the lint trap on your dryer, or your dog or cat don't count. Something found outside- feathers, fur, whatever else you can think of- spiderweb?
