    What a start to this month!!!

    I'll have to get my finger out and get something tied. I did attempt a cascade with peacock in it but wasn't happy with it and now my thunder has been well and truly stolen!!!

    I'll get something together through the week.

    Superb stuff so far!

    Default Alexandra Tube

    Here’s my go this month, an Alexandra variant on a tube with a silver cone body - peacock is in the wing and blue peacock in beard.

    ps: changed entry today as previous one too fussy with too many materials

    I've decided to go ahead with the cascade based version I tied on Friday.

    I wasn't happy with the way that the blue peacock hackle was sitting. I went to the vice today to attempt something different but when I switched on the lamp at the desk, the shine of the peacock just seemed to light up and the hackle was sitting much better than when I'd tied it. It must have flattened itself out over the weekend. I added a couple of Jungle Cock eyes and varnished the head today just.

    Tying is as follows:

    Tail: Mixed yellow and orange bucktail with a couple of strands of Krystal flash
    Tag: Oval gold
    Body: Peacock herl
    Rib: Oval gold
    Wing 1: Two strands of peacock herl tied in behind the head and extending to the length of the tail for added movement
    Over wing: Peacock swords
    Hackles: Yellow hen under orange hen with peacock blue feather tied over.
    Eyes: Jungle Cock

    Funny, that is what I was thinking myself. Loads of sparkly materials and all naturally made.

    Thanks Gary and CB.

    You need to brush up on your photography skills.
    Anyone would think that flee is sat on top of a box of air gun slugs.
