Very nice!!!! I just tied a dozen but had to settle for using mallard flank. It works, but I had to pick through a lot of flank feathers in order to find 12 that were long enough to enevelop a #6 streamer hook (4-8 xl).

Enjoy!!!! Any chance you'll divulge the source?

Friend of mine lives in Texas.He's a duck hunter with orders that I get all the pintail feathers he gets from hunting.First one he's got in three years.Out of the whole bag I pulled out thirty-three usable feathers.

At the risk of being of be accused as a crass capitalist, I have a limited supply of very hight quality pintail. If interested call or email.

No harm in being a capitalist... Unfortunately, I've now got a dozen "knock offs", which rounded out my streamer box so I'm in good shape, but someone should jump on those. Thanks Steve...

P.S. Any photos of the pink fly offerings? I wasn't able to make it to the show...
