A few others

Some changes

in the olives ones the tail and collar hackle is BEP in olive with some argus fibres...i usesd some Coq de leon in place of the guineau as final collar..a bit cleaner look..

In the blues I added a few turns of marabou towrds the front and a wing of barred ostrich

The chartreuse one has a rear a few turns of shlappen and 2 guinea feathers in front for a full look

hope you all like

nice timing, i wrapped a couple shanks last night then thoguht, man, i gotta look at one of David's shanks before tying again... and Bam, here's an SBS. That natural olive w Coq de leon is stunning. real nice work.

oh, what shank are you using on the olives??? Length? looks long and thin, I'm tired of these clunkers that give me odd twisted bodies.

Thanks!!!

Montana Fly Company Offset 40mm -50 mm versions they have a pretty thin wire and the return eye runs the leanth of the shank..they hold real well in the vise
