    I always marvel at Lucien’s innovative patterns and use of materials. I thought I had every material in the inventory but I have never seen the synthetic quill. Where can we get or how to we make this material.

    Great pattern and I too would like to know where the synthetic biot material can be located. Spring is closer than we think.

    Ive used polyethelene strips cut finely, for the synthetic quill. Use markers to color on white poly. BTW very nice tie, very simplistic.

    I’ve tied and sold a similar fly very like this one for years when I lived on the Tweed Coast in NSW OZ. and as quick as I could make them the were sold.
    The customers used it for both fresh and saltwater species, depending on what size was the only difference.
