My package of feathers had a lot of trash in it (wing feathers and broken body feathers). Once that was sorted through and thrown out, the package had at least the advertised number of body feathers for soft hackles, and they were of good quality. However, the range of sizes is relatively limited, and most of them are best for about a size 10 fly. If you want to tie a wide range of sizes or a large number of soft hackle flies, a whole skin is probably worth the money. If you only want to tie a few flies in larger sizes, this package is a good deal.
I bought this material for hackle on small flies and wings. This stuff looks good when finished. I like it as an alternative then getting a whole skin. You get a good amount for a good price.
These are great feather, you get a ton of the and are very versatile. There are big enough feathers for patterns like motto's minnow as well small enough feathers for size 18 prince nymphs. I bought the died brown and they look great for the hackle collar on prince nymphs. The molting is very good.
