Peacock

Peacock feathers are a key ingredient in fly tying streamers, dries, nymphs, and wet flies.

Details

Swords are mainly for fancy streamers, wets, and salmon flies. One of the most widely used feathers in fly tying, herl is used for bodies and wings; eyed tails may be stripped with a pencil eraser for quill bodies. Peacock feathers have a shine and texture that imitates many insects very well.
Shipped to contiguous 48 states only.

    Very strong, beautiful herls. If you are ordering, buy twice the number of packages you think you need.

    Good quality herl has become very tough to find. I heard Orvis eyes and hero were better...not so. Eyes are small and strung herl has very short fibers.
