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.

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.
