I have been chasing a Whiting Spey salmon pink cape for a while to tie up shrimps, but there is a shortage, so: craft cur can be used instead to tie them up. This is a pattegrisen pattern that I haven’t fished with previously, so I need to head out to fish this one of these days!

    Nice tie.
    I, too, looked and finally found Whiting Spey hackle salmon pink. But, to be honest I like the hackles from Bird Fur better. Easier to handle the hackles and palmers nicely…not to thick of thin.
