Anybody got some nice quality fine dark claret bucktail to sell or swap.

I've tried Orvis and Cookshill but no luck, I have a natural tail that I can dye myself but thought I'd ask first, thank you.

Grey turkey tail feathers

Maybe a long shot but does anybody have some grey turkey tail feathers or ideally white tipped grey turkey tail feather. The fibers would have to be 2" long. Dyed swan may do as a substitute or plain white turkey tails that I can dye up. Cash waiting or swap for whatever you'd like.

I need some for the underwing of the Braelangwell classic salmon fly. The only place that I have seen any is on Aaron's site aofeathers.com but the $25 postage is a killer.

Thank you.

Toucan

I have found at the bottom of my box some genuine Toucan on a skin. I know that some of you tiers still want to produce original dressings and I do not know if toucan is still available.

Anyhow I am willing to post some to a genuine tier of built wing beauties as my eyes are now not up to doing them and I am resigned to proding hairwings.

pm if you are interested

20 - 30, probably more.

Chances are I will buy some from cookshill but was hoping to find someone who bought a few packs and never used them. :D

I don't suppose anyone has some blue kingfisher do they??

I am trying to source some to make my fly for the swap a bit more authentic, failing that does anyone know of a good substitute?

any help would be much appreciated

If you can't source any try the 'indian roller' they are sometimes on ebay.
What particular feathers from the bird were you looking for?

Alright chaps,
I was about to order to materials but decided I would check here first if anyone is interested in a swap.

I have 2 large unused patches of nayat from foxytails, one red and one hot orange, I also have a large patch of nayat in kingfisher blue but I have used about 50% of it. All are still foxytails packaging.

I mainly use shrimp patterns so have little use for these.

Below is what I am looking for

  1. Natural white marble fox or yellow marble fox if you have a dark shade of yellow.
  2. Partridge heavy iron doubles in sizes 2 - 8
  3. Quality small and medium oval tinsel

cheers

Anybody got some red badger 6 feathers in total as I don't need a full cape, as I will be only tying a few Red Francis?
