Does anybody have a couple of matched pieces of natural lady amherst center tails feathers, one left and one right.
I'd like to tie a couple of size 3/0 spey dogs and am having trouble sourcing good natural lady amherst center tail.
Happy to buy or swap if anybody has some, thank you.
I would like to swap my wife for thirty bob and a packet of Spangles. If you haven't got thirty bob then I can lend it to you if you like
Great idea Ade. I have more stuff than you can shake a stick at, especially Arctic Fox in all its types and colours and loads of other hairs. But I still find that there are things that you need for a certain pattern but you are reluctant to buy a full tail/cape until you see the results for yourself. I am willing to kick the ball off.
I am looking for some Deep Hot Orange Bucktail and same colour Badger hackles. More than willing to return some flies or swap for any of the stuff I have.
Hi there i just came across this topic i am looking for some G/P orange breast feather,tried to bleach some but it did not work out,if you have some you might consider selling a small amount.
thanks in advance.
Would anyone have any bits and pieces of tubes or components needed for tying tube files on so that I could try and get to grips with the basics and different components needed? I would be happy to pay or swap if I have anything of interest to anyone. Thanks.
A will tye u some flies for materialsFellow tiers
I have a rook load of materials that I have bought over the years and many of them I don't use that often. I will detail them if requested.
I've been in the situation where I wanted to tie a couple of flies but didn't have the materials for it. I've been in that situation many times, but it sometimes doesn't warrant buying say a cape for a couple of flies.
If I have a material you'd like to try for a couple of flies I'll happily post you a sample. Is anyone else willing to do the same? It may also be a good way of trying before buying and finding out the best suppliers of the best materials.
Like I said, I'll let you know/photograph what I have if anyone is interested and would be willing to send a small sample that would do a couple of flies to anyone who seems genuine about tying and has a need for a particular material.
Maybe a nice idea would be to repay with a fly you've tied with the materials sent just so it becomes a sharing thing not a wanton giveaway.
PS Oh, and maybe submit the fly you tie into one of the comps or the SBS
