Hackle: Yellow tied palmer
Body: Yellow floss, dubbing, or wool *
Throat: Scarlet (soft-hackle collar) **
Wing: Gray mallard
* The body component on the recipe listing states only ‘yellow’ so various acceptable materials are listed here.
** The throat hackle as shown on the plate painting is wound as a collar; Burke’s painting indicates scarlet fibers sweeping back above and below the hook eye.
