I actually grabbed some black and yellow griz to play around with. I'll still keep my eye out elsewhere for ya.

it might be too short for me, but that's relatively easy to work around.

Makes me sad Ted's is gone. They used to let us get special orders from anyone they bought regularly from. The entire hareline catalog was available. Ditto metz and whiting.

I've seen Muskie flies tied using these feathers in the 9-10" range.

How much bigger are you going?

Yeah, scratch this whole stupid thread. Got a streamer pack in the mail today. Not what I'm looking for. It is the Whiting American Rooster Cape that I'm after. Thankfully, Galloup has a few at the Slide.

Clarkman, see if you can find these at your shop. It will make way more sense for your muskie flies when you see the size of some of the feathers.

Are you talking the full Rooster Saddles? Usually like 30 bucks a piece? Like the tails in this? View attachment 278318

Yep, that's it.

Last night I went through some of my old feathers, found a few leftovers, and tied this up. These aren't the biggest but you get the idea.

Check eBay. I found some craft lady that sold me three Whiting capes for like 35 bucks. The two I got in black were gorgeous. She stated they had a few feathers missing but she must have meant like two or three cause they were full. I also got a red laced one. Can often ask for pics before buying.
