    Not all ostrich herl is good ostrich herl. This is good ostrich herl: strong stems, dense fibers, good color.

    Real Buggy which is exactly what you want in your fly. I believe the little action it adds makes fly appear alive.

    Full feathers that were exactly as described. Exactly what I was looking for and expected. I am going to get some more colors for collars.

    Poor Quality - 3/15/2013
    By: from Alaska

    The ostrich herls that I got were pretty poor quality. Very sparse, and very small. I was expecting a bigger plume than what I received. The pictures make it look bigger, perhaps a tap measure laid across the middle of the plume would be a good visual assistant to avoid further confusion.
