Clyde's Comments


According to Bates' book, Edson incorporated "Edson" cheeks (gold metal cheeks) to replace the expensive Jungle cock eyes. Also of the five examples in Bates' book, I don't think any of them are tied identicle. He used various hackle types for the tail and even used furnace hackle for the squirrel wing. Seeing this I don't feel as bad for my simplified version. For me it's easier to tie, and still closely resembles the original pattern.
