Mustad 94842 size 12
Lemon Wood duck wings
Grey dubbing (mix fox & superfine)

The dubbed body seems to have a bit too much shine (superfine dubbing) under the lamp

Nice tie Jay. Try muskrat underfur for the body, or a mix of fox & muskrat.

I just grabbed what was nearby :)
Many variations are possible obviously

The shine of the Chocolate dun hackle is quite amazing. Almost glass like. Couldn't really capture 100% it on picture.

I'll try with another dubbing tomorrow during daylight. The color seems a bit too silvery here

Couldn't find any muskrat dubbing. Used the darkest part of the fox I got.
Ah wel... :)
