    Anyone want any feathers for fly tying?
    I don't fly fish, but I do quite a bit of pheasant hunting. We got a 2 bird limit today and it's cold out so the carcasses should last a bit. I can throw them in the freezer to protect them if you can't pic them up right away also.
    I'm located in Munger, few miles southeast of Bay City

    That's a very generous offer Josh. If I were close by, I'd have been over there skinning then out by now. Hope someone takes you up on the offer.

    Good looking hunting companions BTW. Congrats on your success.

    Nice dogs, weimariners? Hope some one takes you up on your offer. I am still working several ringneck pheasant skins obtained 10 years ago.

    Being harvested in the Winter, the after-shafts should be at their peak fluffiest. Perfect for tying Sparrows or used for Hexagenia nymph gills.

    Much better than the skins that one might find in a fly tying supply shop.

    The only caution I would add is the potential introduction of eggs and mites into one's fly tying area. You could end up losing some prized materials. (Been there, done that.) :oops:
