    This was one of those products I wish I could give a 4.5. Overall, great job. Only complaint, a little more fluff on the feathers than usual.

    I purchased these feathers as I use them for wings on dry flies such as fantail mayflies or other dry flies this is an excellent product to be used. I would recommend excellent value for money

    Was rather pleased that this product was still available . I bought a bag from the Sackville st store ,which is a while back . Since then it has been used very succesfully in a variety of sedge patterns ,mainly wets but some dries as well . Coming to the end of the big value bag and will reorder shortly

    not to happy - 1/2/2011

    Ordered "lemon dyed" . Got "gold" 10 bags worth. Was going to return them but the baring on the feathers was very pronounced and I had some tying to do for an upcoming trip so I kept these and also bought some real wood duck flank at another sporting goods store. I'll see what the fish think
