These quills are easy to use after soaking them in water. I tried hot water first, but the color seemed to bleed out a bit, and when I used cold water the next time the color seemed not to bleed out. The one issue I had with them is that there's a white side to the quills, and when wrapped it's very difficult to get a nice even color across the body of the fly. My BWO's turned out much more white than olive. Black quills would make a nice mosquito body though.
I had never tried quill body patterns until I ran across this product. Simply soak them in warm water and you're ready to go. I've had a couple great days out with the quill body patterns I'd tied up
These quills can be used to tie nice bodies. After soaking in water for 15 minutes they are very pliable. I found they did still break if I tried to wrap with the thinnest end of the quill. Moving up the quill a little bit solved the problem. I found that the red and ginger colors are almost identical, at least in the batch I ordered. In my opinion either colors could be used interchangeably.
