Jay Nicholas Saddle and Cape Feather Supplies 1

We have seen the availability take a jump for the better just recently, and wanted to share a little of what we have available right now.  The selection has rarely  been as good and the price as reasonable since we were hit in mid 2011 by the discovery of saddle feathers by the fashion and hair extension craze.

We have a very nice supply of long grizzly saddle patches that make for great dry fly and wings on Intruder style flies.  Included are Metz Grizzly in Kingfisher Blue, Pink, Purple and natural.

Bottom line?  We have hackles for dry flies; wet fly collars; trout, steelhead and salmon flies; comets, traditional wet fly collars, and wings – whatever you are looking for, d we have something fine here for your tying bench.
