Oh ya, I ran out of marabou the other day and as I was looking for another option I came across some dyed pink goose shoulder and it worked pretty well as a hackle, only problem I can think of would be that the barbs would probably stick together in the water. Would probably wrap better if you split the feather too. Just thought I'd share.

Nice to see some ontario guys on here...

 

Looks like it would do well in some of the faster water in the Niagara too!
