    Tying note - Unless you're tying for historical preservation or a museum, don't waste your money trying to find and buying the iridescent breast feathers of a wild turkey. They are just not that iridescent and could be substituted with pheasant tail fibers or micro peacock herl from the tip of an eye feather. I had the correct feathers on hand so that's what I used, otherwise I would have substituted.

    This pattern and one other that I know of, uses the iridescent breast feather of a wild turkey.
