Lander slaughtered another of his roosters and gave it to me. So after skinning, cutting, salting and drying I now have another very fine red furnace hackle neck, some nice red saddle furnace feathers, a handful of black coque feathers and some fine wings. So to honour the bird and the gift I decided that tonights first fly should be done with feathers from this rooster only. So without any further ado here's Landers red #2



Hook: AJ#5
Tag: Thin oval copper tinsel
Body: Black tying thread
Rib: Thin oval copper tinsel
Hackle: Greenish black coque feather
Wing: Bicoloured black and brown wing feather
Collar: Small red furnace feather
Head: Laquered black thread

Well, I was tempted to let the carcass simmer for a few days to make a good reduced stock, but saved myself the hassle, as there is no room in my freezer. So just took the feathers ;-)
