Olive Quill

My infatuation with dying stuff to color Olive seems to recognize no limits. I have just discovered that a peacock quill will take color quite well - with the obvious implications to my tying :)


The tie:
#16 Hanák 130BL hook
14/0 Sheer thread Grey
my very own super special peacock quill, dyed olive
2 puffs of CDC
rough hare thorax (makes the CDC stand up in Mayfly fashion), teased out a bit to suggest legs
