Had to clean out the turkey feathers from last spring to make room for more deer meat. I knew I had a limit of longbeard fans and wings but was surprised to find I had 8 full sets of wings and fans. Had forgotten a couple friends also saved some for me. Just got in from the lengthy clipping session. I got aplenty of tail feathers (great for stones/mottled bodies), base tail feathers (good for PT nymphs), primary wing feathers (biots great for wings/legs/antennae etc.) secondary wing feathers (good mottled wing stuff, caddis/hopper) and iridescent covert feathers (great for wingcases). I'm sure there's many more good uses but (those are the ones I know of). Glad to share them with good tying desk homes.

I got some turkey feathers from Theron a year or two ago. They were sent in a bubble envelope, and the feathers were clean, straight, and ready to use. Very generous of you Windknotter. I sure hope you can make it L&T in a couple of months. You have some skills at the vise that I'd like to observe. By the way, the Moose Mane continues to work very well for me.
