After plucking those pheasants the other day, I decided to put the tail feathers to good use. Before we know it, it'll be time for fishing again - and I just about used up my stock of goldhead nymphs last year.
So I dug my fly-tying kit out of the cupboard and got started. The tube of superglue had dried up, and I'd forgotten the patterns. This one took me most of the evening, and I'm not really happy with it.
With a bit of luck, now I've got all the gear together and reminded myself how it works, I'll speed up a bit. I hope so, or I'll still be tying when the season starts!
