here`s one of the advantages of having a pheasant breeder for a mate. These are a bit hard to come by . They aren`t very good for large flies but they make top wings on Dee and Spey patternsIPB ImageIPB ImageIPB Image

Blue and Gold Macaw tail: A whole tail is fairly expensive but it can be bought in small sections (as shown) for cheap. Individual fibers are often used as horns.

Bronze Mallard: Not rare but often used. Can be had cheap. This is from John Mclain and cost $3.00 for 3 matched pairs. It is usually used as roofs on salmon flies and as wings on spey patterns.

Barred Wood Duck: Again this isn't exactly rare. It can be a little bit hard to find at times and is a little pricey for what you get. You can find it in most fly shops and can definately be ordered through John Mclain or other online dealers. But this is an essential feather to classic patterns. Used as tail veilings and sides.

Goose Shoulder: Goose is used in married wings and tails. It is the cheapest winging material ( $3 for 6 feathers) but is harder to use than turkey. Quality can sometimes be poor so get it from a good source like John Mclain.

Floss: This is used to wrap colored bodies on various styles of salmon flies and classic wets. Traditionally silk floss was used but there is rayon floss also available. Rayon is cheaper but has a different appearance than silk. Either kind of floss is very easy to get. Here the top spool is silk and the bottom is 4 strand rayon.

Shot this for someone so thought i'd post it here too, some of the rare bustards:

Left: Little Bustard (courtesy of that finest of gents, Sir Bud Guidry) - I believe this to be what's meant in Francis by 'Bastard Bustard' max size about 3/0

Centre: Arabian Bustard - believed by many to be the feather meant when 'light' bustard is specified - VERY expensive though

Right: Senegal Bustard - similar to Little Bustard - max size about 4/0 if you're lucky.

this is a very light yellow golden pheasant probably has some artistic value as the tippets are a lovely pale beige colour

eared pheasants i think these are blue eared in winter coat as they are quite dark but they provide a great heron hackle substitute
turns out they are juveniles so are quite dark

Swan is a great material for dee flies. The swan that I have isn't great quality, so I just use it for my fishing flies. It is very easy to use, but I had a bit of trouble finding it.

There is a 10/0 hook as a size reference(only hook I could find at the moment)

White tip turkey is used in a lot of classics. The most known is probally the Jock scott. It is normally used as an underwing(that I know of) I find it pretty difficult to marry, but it isnt' too bad making it as an underwing aslong as the hook is bigger than a size four(it was pretty difficult)
10/0 for reference
