Excellent Quality to use for nymph bodies
Reviewer: A viewer from Southern Connecticut
These are top-notch quality to use as tails, wing cases and so on. What many tiers don't know is that they also make an excellent herl body for nymphs. Simply underwrap the body with thread to make a slight taper, and cover with turkey quill. You will get a nice mottled body. You should reinforce the body with a counter-ribbed small size copper wire.
Poorly Matched Quills
Reviewer: A viewer from Auburn, IN US
I bought (3) pairs of these quills for muddlers. Although each package did contain a left and a right wing feather, the feathers were very poorly matched in both color and size. I had to mix and match between the (3) pairs to get one "reasonably" matched pair.
