owl bust your collection material, Mallard Flank or Barred Wood Duck feathers can easy to find near the water where these (they love to fight or clean themselves) birds are found, where we are fishing... one time on a fishing trip, I gathered a good collection of Canada goose feathers (they were very much on the river) Pets (I have fly call FrankiFly make from fur my cat Franki) good resource material for fly tying...
stuffed animals (or carpet it some time sparkling) have synthetic "fur" good resource make dubbing... some time you find lost flip-flops, foam sole good material for popers & you do good, clean the water and find material for you)))
you might even think that you have around that you could be using to fly tying
is all free
