    Alan, my first motorbike was a BSA A10 Golden Flash - hence the name

    Hans I never had you down for a biker. Mind you I've had my share of them. I was thinking of the other A10 Which is just too slow to do what it does. At least it looks that way.
    (I've found my woodcock! Guess what I'll be tying tomorrow.)

    Han's what do you mean by 'rolled' for the wing?
    Trout don't speak Latin.

    TF,

    You start with a bunch of barbs, with the tips aligned, by either cutting or tearing away from the stem.

    You could then carefully 'roll' these together, a bit like rolling up a sheet of paper, to form a single narrow wing, but in practice the approach tends to be to fold, and re-fold the section to end up with a single narrow wing.

    Rolled wings are most often made from the flank feathers of a duck species, but as shown in the A10 other feathers can be used.

    Cheers,
    Hans W
