These are some crazy feathers!!!

We bought this set of Argus Secondary Wing Feathers for fly tying purposes, but they are so nice hate to cut them. Thinking about framing this set of feathers and then buy another set and actually tie some flies.

When buying complete bird skins, the skin should be pliable and scrapped clean of any residue.

Commercially available bird skins and feathers bought in a fly tying shop will be clean and have uniform color when dyed. If acquiring bird skins and feathers from other sources then precautions should to be taken to avoid insects or other pests that could infest your fly tying supplies.
