Thanks everyone. I'd really like to give this one a swim, just to see what it looks like in the water as much as anything. Hopefully get a decent spell of rain soon!

Thanks again! πŸ‘

Thanks Scierra! πŸ‘

Yes, blue Guinea foul. It was the waste end of a feather that I found in my desk. I'm not sure what fly I tied the rest of it on.

This is from a bag of veniards guinea foul that is years old that a friend gave me. On the packet, it is marked as blue Jay substitute. It is a much more electric blue than my own blue dyed stuff. It's a beautiful shade. I use it sparingly! 😊

I have a few colours of guinea and I'm not really sure why I don't use it more.

I like the look of these inline hooks myself but haven't had a chance to fish with them yet.

With rain forecast from tomorrow, I might get a chance to try out some Waddingtons and these single hooks over the weekend. πŸ™‚
