Now there's a classic! Beautifully tied and wonderfully conceived! I am just starting to wonder around your site and so far, it's great! I think I will visit here often!

That hackle doesn't look very soft to my eye. I would use starling and brown silk buttonhole twist, as my offset for that pattern.

"soft hackled" flies can be tied with either hen or cock hackles and most legal game bird feathers. each provides its own effect

what you use is entirely up to you
