Here is another one, this time it is on a waddington with dumbell eyes - almost a cross between the Intruder and one of Glasso's speys

Ooops! - forgot to add krystal flash to the wing, I prefer the new opal mirage accent flashabou - it is brighter than anything else out there.

Hammer,

Kate Davidson of Siskiyou Aviary is right in your neck of the woods. She supplies Rhea. Do a web search to find her site.

Rhea and waddington shanks are available from Jack Cook at irishangler.com...hope that address does not violate board rules. He is in Carnation, Wa I think.

Speydoc,

Very cool looking flies. :cool:

How did you get the Rhea feathers?

Does anyone know if the board sponsors have any?
