I would like to get my hands on some Jungle Cock some day but can't see forking over the bucks for it.  

laugh.png Yeah ... no doubt a flight to Africa would set you back a pretty penny or 2. 

 

I've heard, that's how you get some strange diseases, too.

 

South America is a little closer ??

Probably wouldn't find any jungle fowl in Africa or South America, more likely to score some  in England or India.

Specifically grey jungle fowl, Gallus sonneratti. several years ago they kinda popular as hobby birds, sold ~$100-150/pair, but I can't find any for sale in current US ads. There is a jungle fowl breeders page on facebook that you could investigate.

I would like to get my hands on some Jungle Cock some day but can't see forking over the bucks for it.  I really don't care for the fake ones (plastic or whatever they are). I will continue to leave it off and wish there was a suitable alternative.

Reading back over my post, I realize that if someone that doesn't tie flies were to read those first two sentences, they would get a whole different meaning.

I like to think of myself, and my humor, as "many layered". 

"The Gutter" is but one of those layers.  Not, necessarily the bottom layer, either.
