Identification

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Brand new to tying and I got a whole bin full of products from someone who is deceased.

I'm trying to identify a few things so I know what I've got here. Can someone help?

Metz Feathers: black. Same size pack as a grizzly saddle dyed olive but feathers look different. Plus another brown. I can email or text a picture to someone.

 

Thank you!

 

Joun

Yeah, upload the pics to a hosting site like Imgur, then put em up here.

 

Sounds like bog standard hackle, but whether it's neck or saddle, hen or rooster...that'll require a picture. And it *is* a significantly different usage for the feathers, depending on what exactly you have.

what do feathers have to do with entomology?

 

 

Maybe they have parasites?... smile.png

Good answer, Bimini !! LOL

I was thinking more along the lines of ... "Maybe the question is driving Johnny buggy."

nope.

 

parasites feed on living hosts.

 

I think the word you want is scavengers.
