Collecting Your Own Flytying Materials.

Yesterday I had a great shoot with my son and the landowner who's property I have been hunting on for the past 30 years. Outside of a broken fan belt and getting stuck in a slough bottom all was good. Off to Wainwrights Ford Dealership for the belt and walking across the section and getting the John Deer to pull me out was exciting enough. The Northern Green Heads are down in full force and they were hiding in heavily willowed ponds because of the higher winds. It was a great shoot. Now I have collected from some very mature birds great feathers. Grand Nashu (seldom to never found in stores) bronze as it comes and Wild Mallard Flank that is up to 3 inches long. Great material for Steelhead, salmon and trout flies. Some excellent rump blue/ black ( never found in stores) mallard crest green/black ( never found in stores), natural grey cdc as well. Mallards and Pintails abound and now there will be some bbq duck this fall. And some new material for flytying and experimenting with new patterns that will be unique and different. I cant wait.

 

Today is family Turkey Day. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. It is a special day of thanks in our home. A time to gather family, friends and relatives to be thankful for a great harvest and bounty that has been so graciously given to us.
