  1. John and his wife are retiring as soon as the present stock is gone. No one is taking over the business. Go to his web page to select and order any hackle you might want. After all these years of development John has some pretty good hackle. Griz may be in short supply very quickly.

    The thread is open to be Dennisized a bit. Fire red thread will give it a hot spot in low light conditions (near sunset)

    Use the tying thread to make a peacock hurl rope to add some durability.
