Default Need Blk Flashback Pheasant Tails

Hello,
Any suggestions where I might find some good quality black flashback pheasant tail nymphs in #16 & #18?
Prefer USA tied flies if possible.
Garden variety pheasant tails are easy to find but black ones seem to be a bit more difficult.
I've searched the net with minimal success. Thanks!

For a quick fix you can use a Perma tone marker in black and color some standards yourself. I belive Cabela's sells them in teir fly fishing section on-line. You local hobby/craft store may even sell something you could use.

The ribbing and herl does not need to be black.

Check Feathercraft for black pheasant, black wire for abdomen?
