Peacock Quill Attempts

For tying tiny dry fly bodies one of the most important materials is the peacock-quill. Popular material, but his completion,- if we do not want to buy it ready- rather troublesome.
Erasure method is good, works for me, but it is time-consuming. His important benefit is, that the quill can be painted. On the other hand, erasure produce a lot of waste material, mainly the thinner segments tear easily. Heavy to hit the good eraser.
The best quill is made of the 4-5 year old peacock tail feathers.
