It really pays off to become friends with people who hunt! I have been blessed to have a few friends that brought me back a few birds last year and here are some of the hackles! The colorations are to die for, and obviously a fly shop would kill to have such quality! Now if I could only tye well to give these hackles the spotlight they deserve!
