No, but seriously folks, have you used Swan? How do you like it?
Dan,

Not to throw you, but there are actually more choices; at least according to Michael Radencich in his 2007 book: Classic Salmon Fly Materials. In it, he lists for winging materials:

Turkey
Goose
Florican Bustard
Peacock
Pheasant
Macaw
Cockatoo
(no Swan / however, Pryce-Tannatt does mention Swan in his 1935 book on dressing Salmon Flies)

There's actually a good site to source all of the above feathers, and some others; it's "FeathersMC": Feathersmc.com: Home This is John McLain's site. For John, the acquisition and sale of these feathers is a hobby that's grown into a business. I met him at the Somerset, NJ Fly Tying Exhibition back in November. He's a great guy with a real wealth of knowledge about Salmon Fly materials. His site is definitely worth looking at. His prices seem reasonable and he's willing to do custom work.

Have fun!

Pocono

If you have any friends who hunt snow geese I would think they would be a very good substitute for swan.
