Jungle cock capes

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where l might be able to purchase a decent jungle cock cape? I'm tying working flies so I don't need a presentation grade cape. Using it mainly to tie steelhead flies.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Ebay. Haven't looked lately but they usually have a good bunch to choose from at as good a price as you'll get on those capes. Only good quality cree seems to sell for more than JC.

Dave Roberts at Feather Emporium has them but his reputation for not filling orders in a timely fashion and poor communication indicate caution in dealing with that vendor, apparently best to see him in person at a show or his shop.

All these are supposed to be farm raised and I really wonder at some of the prices, hard to believe it is that much more difficult to raise them than to raise domesticated descendants of them.

So sorry for the delay in my response.  Been a long road.

His shop is really interesting.  The front halve he and his wife have a rock and gem shop and the back is the fly shop.  Both will force you to wander and browse through everything.  One thing I found interesting was, if you don't see what you are looking for, he will have it in storage or he'll go out back and kill it.
