Great Material at an Unbeatable Price
Reviewer: A viewer from Midland, MI US
These skins are a must for any dedicated soft hackle tyer. Many uses for the many feathers found on the skin. J. Stockard also has the best prices on starling skins that I have found. Great Stuff!

I've just begun to use starling for soft hackles. These skins are beautiful! If you've never used starling, don't keep putting off ordering some like I did. Easy to wrap and the webby bluish/black feathers are magnificent. Definitely worth the price. You will like these.
A must have for soft hackle addicts!

If you fish soft hackles then you must have a Starling skin. Patterns such as the "Starling and Herl", "Black Gnat", and "Simple Starling" have been used for centuries because they are easy to tie and because they catch fish. The "Simple Starling" is especially effective when tied with a thin red or orange body of silk. Silk is hard to find but you can get if from JS Fly Fishing under: Fly Tying -->> Thread/Yarn/Wire/Braid -->> Gossamer Silk Thread.
