Peacock’s & Fly Tying: A Remarkable Bird

A design on a box for a cologne or some such scent. Caught my eye, so I snapped it.

Here’s a nice piece at Sexy Loops by Jo Meder re the ‘Fabulous Pheasant’

This peacock design was off the back of my ex-wife’s blouse. I snapped it as we watched our g-daughter at a sporting event. Hey, I saw the possibilities.

Peacock is, indeed, a remarkable tying material that comes in its natural colors but these days is also dyed. It is a wonderful material whether in its natural state or dyed. Tails, wings, abdomens, thorax and wingcases…it is a must have material.

    Absolutely one of the “Magic Materials” for fly tyers and providing metalic sheen to numerous patterns well before the advent of modern synthetics. Is there a fly fisherman out there who hasn’t caught a trout on peacock feathers? The Zug Bug, The Diawl Bach, The Black and Peacock Spider , “The Alexandra” and a zillion other patterns can be found in fly boxes around the world utilizing this amazing gift from nature. Agreed a “Must Have” material.
