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.
We also have #2 grade Metz saddles in Grizzly and various other colors.
We also have a nice selection of dyed saddles perfect for steelhead and salmon collars, ranging from narrow for small comets to wide and webby for collars on size 2-6 wet flies.
We have some very interesting dry fly capes.
We also have some nice Euro saddles in cream and variant marking.
And some nice capes for wings and collar hackles anywhere from black to natural grizzly, to dyed Badger and Cree, plus red and purple and gosh knows what else.
Our purples are wonderful.
So – come by or call or email and let us know what you are looking for and we will be happy to make your feather wishes come true. many of these are one of a kind items, so the sooner you act, the more likely it is that we will have these limited availability items.
Thanks for your interest, we are constantly striving to keep good feathers for fly tying at reasonable cost, and our latest acquisition is worth smiling over.
