Hey Bill and Howie

Ok Howie, you are obviously confused and I am probably to blame...

The underwing is tied with YELLOW GOAT hair which is similar to Deer hair, however is much softer and does not stick up in the air, which is a total pain in the ass! As for the true wing, it is indeed fox, any old fox you have as long as it is silver!! haha...

The collar is NOT tied with Amherst. I never said that, it is tied with SILVER PHEASANT as a collar! the original had an amherst eye but was too hard to tie in and too expensive for such a low budget fly. That is the beauty of this fly, it is so easy to tie and easy to get the materials!
