    Hi Bruce,

    Scroll about halfway down the page to see his dyed starling skins including olive. Many of his pages are not updated though, so whether he actually still has this in stock or not you'll...

    Hi Scott,

    I would just like to add that the late Dick Talleur wrote that the best wing feather quills for this pattern are from an american black duck. The secondaries are better than the...

    Great review with a lot of indepth comparisons. No surprise that Whiting comes out on top in the end. If Collins saddle was quite a bit different in color from the cape in the same pack, it was more...

    Byron,

    Are you asking where you can get this now? It's available at the Book Mailer. In bulk from some other source, that ship may have sailed. Synthetics are constantly upgrading and tweeking...

    Hi Byron,

    I would just pluck them too. At least 7 or 8 years ago, I bought a drake woodie skin from a well known flyshop up in Maine. It still has so much oil that it's leached into several changes of paper...
