These are great woodduck substitute for dry fly wings. On this site, woodduck is more than twice as expensive and you get way less than half as many feathers. Yes, woodduck is a better quality feather but if you don't want to spend tons of money to tie winged dry flies, get these. The woodduck tan color comes pretty close to the color of lemon woodduck flank feathers.
I bought these to try and they really are a great product. I have been using these at the same time as wood duck feathers and when I am finnished they both look good. This really does make a good alternative with a larger variety of color and a much larger supply for less.
Very good quality and consistency from the Hareline packs(transfer them into a larger bag to keep them shapely). As stated previously, others are full of tiny, crushed, and otherwise mostly useless bits of flank feathers. Mallard flank is one of my favorite cheek and gill plate materials. The translucent quality looks great over estaz, cactus chenille, and other flash materials when wet.
My only complaint with the Mallard Flank (Olive) from Hareline Dubbin, Inc is the small quantity, as well as the fact that several of the feathers have slightly different shades of olive and are also different sizes.
