Thanks Pup. The idea is the pheasant fiber when wet till kick a bit in the water when the jig is moved hopefully triggering some gills to bite. I like to mess with different feathers for their different characteristics under water. Tie a jig with some soft hackle and throw it in a bowl of water and give it a little bump and see the jig come alive, its amazing! Hen hackle and back is amazing for this, I should have used some of that instead now that I am thinking about it!
