Where should I look to find larger sized hackle feathers? I'm interested in tying (palmering) Wooly Buggers, etc. in hook size 2, 4, 6 but just about every feather on the saddles I've purchased are for the smaller hook sizes. What should I ask for, my last two saddles were listed as "Large" but as it turned out that ment they were of longer length not wider! Any help for a newbie?
Let's discuss the pesky little bugs and stuff that seem to enjoy some of the fly tying materials I've purchased from the internet, mostly from private sellers on Ebay, etc. I've learned to isolate new materials in ziploc bags, I even toss in a moth ball just to be safe but still, is there a tried and true method to follow?
