A few feathers

Recommended Posts

These blue feathers were given to me by a vet who kept exotic birds.  I think she was a "rescue" keeper as well.'

I don't know if they can be used to tie a couple of flies; I know I CAN'T use them.  If you want them, send me your mail address and they're yours.

They look very similar to some parrot feathers my niece sent to me.  I was able to tie some size 12 and size 14 nymphs with them

Macaw I believe. I’ve used the shorter side to tie 

some interesting biot bodies. The longer side I leave to

the salmon guys though the usually need center feather.

Blue and Yellow Macaw. These would be fine for small flies, but for classic salmon flies much too small. Long center tail feathers are what we use.
