Two marabou spey  y patterns shown against some rare Florican and Kori bustard feathers, which were obtained from the San Diego Zoo.
Dry  ies on a barred ginger saddle hackle cape (or, to the rest of us, chicken rump feathers). These  ies are used to imitate the summertime caddis and hexagenia nymph hatches on the upper Columbia River.
A pair of original Kootenay Lake streamers on a dyed yellow rabbit hide. The glass eyes, used in bird taxidermy, give the streamers a realistic look in the water.
A selection of original stillwater trout patterns on the back of a red golden pheasant skin. Clockwise from top right: “Rubber Band Dragon,” “Fry-N-Egg,” “Dubbed Dragon,” Peacock Dragon,” and “Water Boatman.”
Deer hair sculpins on a piece of elk mane. Also called bullheads, sculpins are a small forage  sh that live on the bottom of most healthy streams, ponds, lakes, and rivers. Clockwise from top: “Timothy O’Leary,” “Grey Grizzly,” “Brown Hen,” “NASCAR,” and “Olive Hen.”
Five of John’s original steelhead  ies displayed against three grey jungle fowl necks. Clockwise from top: “Plum Crazy,” “Peacock Spider,” “Canary Spey,” “Spring Time,” and “Tangerine.”
