Tag: None
Tail: Golden pheasant tippet
Ribbing: Silver tinsel and black ostrich herl
Body: White ostrich herl
Hackle: Blue gray
Wing: Cinnamon with black tip

The ribbing on the Lady Mills is unusual. Like a palmered hackle with a tinsel rib, the tinsel should be wound first and the ostrich herl is wound butted against the rear edge of the tinsel.

    Hello Bill;
    This wing, actually, ha, ha, was all cinnamon. I made it black, like the one in the book painting, by using a black magic marker, but dabbing the feather to make it look right. A little tying secret!
