"Turkey on the Fly" - collecting fly tying materials...

On opening day of the NY state fall turkey season I was fortunate to take this beautiful adult hen turkey in the pouring rain..... None of it will go to waste.

All the meat will be eaten... in fact we already had Wild Turkey Chowder made with the legs from this bird.... Delicious!

The feathers from the wings will be used on arrows; the body, neck and tail feathers will be used to create, nymphs, wet flies and streamers for fly fishing.....
