Ostrich Herl For Fly Tying

Ostrich Herl can be used for the tail, legs, abdomen/gills, thorax, wing case or antenna on various patterns. It pulses, waves and shimmies. It is fairly durable too. Yes, I am experimenting with various photo backgrounds for the fun of it.

Peacock & Peafowl (Tattoos & Fly Fishing)

There is a fascination with Peacock feathers in fly tying and fly fishing. It is a beautiful bird, a male bird. Did you know that the actual bird is a Peafowl? The male is the Peacock and the female is the Peahen. The Peafowl is the national bird of India. And, the Peacock’s plumage is the subject of many tattoo designs, particularly for women.

Even this old peacock piece was tucked away in my deceased uncle’s shop, up on a shelf amidst his tools, reloading dies and cigar boxes. He was a fly fisher and this was apparently symbolic to him.

Peafowl are omnivorous and roost in trees when not foraging for reptiles, amphibians and plant parts. (learn more here about Peafowl/Peacocks)
