You may be right. I just can't remember. I'm hoping Mark Mercer takes a look - he'll know.
Mottled turkey quill.
Good call Pat.... Mottled Peacock Secondary Wing Quills. I think the Rolled Muddler would be hard to beat as a pattern. As hard as GP tail is to work with, it would look really cool, hummmm....Jack, I think you ought to tie one up and show us.
At first I thought the same thing especially as I had the feathers mixed in with a bunch of definite turkey feathers. I knew they were something a bit more "exotic" though.
Thanks for your reply.
Thanks Mark. I was hoping you would see them.
I'm going to try the peacock and the GP and tie up a few.
Jack, Great! Don't forget to show us the results.
Here is a comparison photo: Known Turkey on the left, feather-in-question on the right.
Similar for sure but I now am positive is peacock..
Oy! Before I saw your picture I would have bet the farm but now I am convinced that you, Pat, and Mark are correct.
Definitely Peacock. Don't tell Mark but I went on Lamplight Feathers website and looked at their peacock to confirm.
