I'm sure you are right, you could almost always find a substitute. Dyed Mallard or Natural would probably work just fine. Not sure what you consider expensive or where you've purchased bronze mallard before? I got mine here:
JS Fly Fishing: Rod Building, Fly Tying: Hareline Bronze Mallard Flank
Seemed reasonable enough to me?
