    Default Golden pheasant crest

    I'm looking for some good quality golden pheasant crest's in colours
    hot orange, bright yellow and chartreuse, I don't really want to go down the route of dyeing myself as don't really have the time or knowledge of dyeing so if anyone knows where I can purchase these colours it would be much appreciated

    Try Steve Cooper at Cookshill.

    He always has the best quality crests this side of the Atlantic, which you can buy as full heads or individual crests.

    I'm not sure what dyed colours he sells but well worth asking.

    Golden Pheasant Crest Only - Lakeland Fly-Tying

    think of them mixed in irish shrimp tails with the wound breast stuck in all angles fanning out,bit of interest in a tail varient in your stoats, mixed toppings dyed and tied in for wings, pig to be done neatley but water soon makes it look, not so neat
    Used to tie one with black dyed pheasant breast and crest in the tail,half silver body black gp wound breast middle hackle,front half silver and repeat the black pheasant breast, a good varient of this was. lagaturn used to do a rainbow silver coloured flat braid insted of silver.even couple fine black pig bristles in there,use different threads under lagaturn or mylar ie white makes pearl brite ,black makes greenish etc
