Default Wtb Pearsall's silk and soft hackle materials

I'm looking for several things, the first is Pearsall's Gossamer silks on the old wooden spools, the older the better. Next on my list are any feathers for tying soft hackle flies, specifically Golden Plover, Landrail and Dotterel. But anything will be considered. I will pay a fair price for anything or trade some nice steelhead materials. Oh, I would like to add older short shank hooks to my list in the sizes of 10-18.
If you have anything please pm me.

Barry

Is this for the US?
Just an FYI, both the Golden Plover and the Dotterel are protected under the MBTA. So selling, trading, buying or possesing those feathers would be illegal.

Thanks for the link. I would like the older silks because they are slightly coarser and look better to me on soft hackles. I have all the easily available materials and I am looking for the older stuff that is no longer wanted!

Got plenty of legal Golden Plover. There have been legal Dotterel on eBay, but to rich for me.
But Iím still after Gossamer on wooden spools. Seems as hard to find as D. B. Cooper!
