Default ATTN hunters - need some white duck breast feathers

I know a few guys have posted on here about hunting and offering feathers, but i can never find the threads when i want them.

Anyways. i need white duck breast feathers for some flies.

If anyone can help me out that would be great!

Thanks

Eunan

White breast from any duck? Going again soon if merganser is ok I'll get you a couple . If it's specific species let me know. Have a bunch of duck guys by me.

i suppose any duck is good, as long as its white, Its for coachman fan wings. I think the when i've seen them in shops in the past they were woodduck. woodie also has the nice flank feathers too...

Eunan,

I believe you will want the little bitty solid white feather for the fan wings, I will post a picture of some so guys know what you are after.

Woodies are gone by mid October and they are hard to get. This time of year it's mallards , merge and black ducks. And tons of Canada's. When Ard posts a pic I'll compare them to a merg I have on the wall.

This would be the stuff, think in terms of very small although there is nothing in the photo for scale. They do come from Wood Duck Drake. I have searched at length for a bag full of these that I got long ago without success. I am quite sure they are here somewhere but I have not used any for 9 years and......well that's a long time

I took this image from a seller and have sent you the link for a bag @ $3.95, you may as well get a few.

Click the image to open in full size.

These are identical to what I used for fan wings in the past............ I'm gonna go look some more, they gotta be under sompthin here
