    I'm having a heck of a time finding any white duck quill feathers. I've tried most of the local Seattle/Tacoma fly shops with no luck. Does anyone know of any local shops that have the white matched duck quills? I'm tying mostly traditional Royal Coachman and yes I have used calf tail but I'm on a traditional Catskill kick right now that's why I want to use duck.

    Why the heck are these quills so expensive while ducks are just about the most common (water) birds?
