Thanks guys. It’s a nice pattern for sure. The green floss does glow on this one. I can say gadwall can be unruly when used as hackle. It takes a fair amount of primping and manipulation to get the it to all sit with any resemblance of flow. Marty mentions using spit as part of a preparation step.....

I don’t normally grab for green.... but this pattern has changed my views on that.

Cheers all.

Thanks moe. It's two of the naturally red breast feathers of the golden pheasant, dyed green, stacked together and set flat on top. Marty Howard calls it a spoon wingset.
