Default Pheasant Feathers

Is there an application or pattern that calls for these blue/gray feathers? https://dl.dropbox.com/u/70152689/100_1561.jpg

No image came through with the post but.......I'm guessing you are talking about those lower saddle / upper rump feathers right? They make great soft hackle wet flies or soft hackle fuzzy nymphs nicely. You can use them as under wing material on feather wing streamers or as the hackle on small Spey style wet flies.

I have made a lot of flies with pheasant rump and grouse also, nice stuff.

Here's a few I use here made with the gray / brown pheasant.

I thinks those are the ones. I'm having issues with photobucket again. My sister recomended Dropbox but I can't get that to work either.
