    Hi Richard;
    Sorry to not catch your comment sooner; I don’t get any comment feed on these patterns as they come out.
    You are correct and the material is correct, it’s supposed to be gray mallard, but the text of golden pheasant tippet is incorrect. Thanks for calling this to my attention…not sure if I can get it fixed, I’ve tried before on little things like this and, well…
    Again, thank you for your interest, due diligence and time!

    I love the work put into this fly and the research on its history. If those two brothers would have gotten along better, who knows what they could have come up with.
