Got a package from Pat B yesterday. Enclosed were 2 sourwood shoot shaft arrows. One with a stone point with turkey wing fletchings and the other the shaft was sharpened, fire hardened with goose fletchings. Both are in the 2 fletch style with self nocks. I've seen lots of pictures of the 2 fletch style but never any in person before. Very cool. Eastern woodland is some of my favorite type of style so these 2 examples are super.   
Hope my pictures do them justice. Thanks so much Pat!

Thats good news Rob. I always hate that limbo between sending something and the time it gets there.

Here are some pics of the arrow I sent to Rob.

Point is a Madison style from Nethers' Flint ridge I dug last year. Overall I was pretty happy with how that turned out. Pretty much the best I can do. Viburnum shaft and just had some fun with the fletchings and barberry/walnut stains.  I had not been happy with my sinew wraps that I had been putting on my own arrows so I slowed down for this one and tried to keep it as neat as I could. Funny how much better things can be when you take your time. Anyways, hope you like it Rob.

Fun to watch these happening.  I'm going to do this next year.  You all have my permission to bug me about it if I don't.   ;D

Pat I was in such a hurry I forgot to pack up my letter to you.

I actually have a part two I want to send yet. I didnít want to send both parts in the same package so hopefully I get the second part sent soon and the letter sent with it

PS at least the arrow is on its way though. I hope you like it.
