        Thanks Lucian. Even if someone on Facebook was faster to reply, it was nice to guess right. Beautiful fly. Love that thorax, too.

    It seems popular opinion is a pelican quill was used for palmering the body.

    I think the body is nothing more than heat shrink tubing and palmered with stripped peacock eye feather.
