Last weekend, at the SEC-FFF Fly Fishing Festival, I was messing around with some display flies (not meant for fishing). Anyway, using some body feathers from a Lady Amherst Pheasant, I came up with this. This is actually the second effort, using different feathers for the wing, and a different body color, hence the #2 designation. The head isn't as smooth as it should be, and a bit of head cement bled into the leading edge of the wing, but otherwise, I thought it came out rather well.

Another shy guy here in 'ol PHG.

So ya'll know, PHG won Fly Tier of the Year for the SE council of the FFF.
The above details may be wrong but I did see his fly in a shadow box along with some damn nice ties by other festival tyers but Pauls held the place of honor in that shadow box along with the tyer of the year title.
