It was me. I really like them and I thought Shakey would enjoy seeing them.

how did you get the guinea quill wings to stay together? They always fall apart on me. I can do duck, goose, goose shoulder, turkey, married wings, but not guinea.

Just cut them from the wing quills and tied them in. No special techniques.
Are you using guinea wing or the fibers from the body feathers??

The Guinea in the floors above are craft store quills. Feathersmc.com our aofeathers.com may have some. Otherwise you'll need to but a skin. Also check greatfeathers.com and cookshill fly tying in UK.

If you have any that look like baby browns I'll take a 1/2 dozen, brook trout love brown trout flies.

thanks for thinking of me shane.please note however,that i tye my wets(certainly not as nicely) with the wings curved toward each other to form one flat wing.more of a catskill and british style.
andy brasko of new jersey,mike valla and joe fox of the catskills would be good examples of the style.as well as davey mcphail and david camiss british flies.

these lovely tyes are done in a more of a don bastian style,with the wings splayed,which is very nice,but not what i strive for.

lovely tyes though that i'm sure would catch fish.
