Default Re: The Char Fin a Married Wing wet fly

That's what I hear, too, Dan.

But, I've also heard that turkey tail feathers are getting harder and harder to come by because the poultry breaders aren't interested in breading broilers with tails; they want as few feathers on their birds as possible.

The net result for fly tyers is that it's getting harder and harder and more and more expensive to source good quality turkey feathers; supply and demand market dynamics are working against us.
