Great colors, feathers were short
Reviewer: A viewer from Peralta, NM US
Schlappen feathers make great streamer bodies in that the make a fly look like it has bulk with out adding weight. Feathers were very webby but really short. The nice usable pieces were only two and a half to three inches before the feathers became fuzzy. Other than that they were dyed great and you get a good amount for the price.

A must for tying many of today's spey patterns. These feathers are plenty long, in many cases, to tie two flies. The webby hackles really have great action underwater, enhancing many streamer patterns for trout, salmon, and steelhead.

While I too would like to see some longer usable parts...I do like this stuff. I use it a lot on salmon flies as well as bass and pike flies. It has great motion in the water. I wrap schlappen like hackle after I tie in tails on deer hair and synthetic bass poppers. It looks great.
