left side of feather for far wing hitch, the opposite of what most of us modern tiers do...

kevin, as always there is just a comforting fishy feel to all your work. The toucan is just stunning, thats a feather thats been on my list for a while. awesome, awesome work!

Another great set of ties

Time at the bench seems to be very worthwhile! :)

a Stand-out!

These are all very nice flies. Both lots of classic feather binding all 'round.
