Default Re: What have you been tying today?

I've ordered these feathers and have some on hand. They're not select grade, but they'd be very good to use as the cloak and tail on a dabbler. Select feathers of any sort are always a premium cost and for the application you mentioned would be better than these ones. I can understand your reluctance to use select bronze mallard on a dabbler. I have married or at least attempted to marry them in a spey style fly and they're OK though I'm sure select would be better. I think I got 4 or 5 matched feathers in one pack? Maybe more, can't recall exactly.

stenacron, those are some beautiful looking ties!
