Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

My latest batch of quill floats have less paint to show more of the natural quill colors. I used large copper loops to accommodate fly line. I used a satin finish to reduce glare. They are pictured with a vintage Porcupine Quill my father had. No geese were harmed all feathers were molted voluntarily.

Thanks Guys they won't replace porcupine quills but they are a lot easier to get and free. They make some real fancy one over in Europe. They are worth checking out. We been eating duck but geese haven't been on the menu Carl. Yet.
