    Nice - 10/22/2014

    Have had good results for both saltwater and freshwater applications - deceivers, poppers, etc...., and have caught lots of fish, which works for me.

    Good for Wooley Bugger Flies - 5/17/2014

    This is one of those packs that I do not order online. I always look at the bags, as some strung feather packs are longer. Anyhow, I use black and white for Wooley Buggers. The dyeingjob n the ones I got was excellent, no bleading of th colour etc.

    Happy to find a great vendor - 12/29/2012

    I was cautious as to the quality of the feathers until I open the package. They were exceptionally long with good quality. I was looking for a vendor where I could get "Long White Hackles" in order to tie big Strippers flies such as Half & Half's. Keep up the quality, I have passed your name to other tiers. Bob

    Dye not set - 12/19/2012
    By: from Wisconsin

    The long feathers were all badly bent in the bag so I decided to steam the feathers. When I laid them down on a paper towel the dye started to come out. Obviously, the dye was not set properly. I have done this before on feathers and not had this issue.

    Very Long! - 9/10/2012

    Works great for large flies! Just wish I could find a size that is in between this extra long and normal because it seems like I have a lot of wasted material after using this.

    Disappointed - 7/31/2012
    By: from Birmingham, UK

    Nearly sent the packet back.A good quarter of the feathers had missing tips or were cut lower down the feather. Not up to the normal high standard of Orvis. The rest of my order was very good.

    I like to tie big streamer patterns for predators and these are perfect for large salmon or predator patterns,these fit the bill without the price tag of a full cape, highly recommended...
