Here is a use for emu. Last year I did some testing and it worked out great. I hate deer hair (allergies), so I looked for something different. The stiff part of the feather works great in place of deer hair on these wakers.

Used emu feathers for aquatic worms - trimmed off the palmered flue on the top and bottom. The fish didn't object.
There is a lot of variation in the stiffness/thickness of the racus so you do want to select your feathers if you can.
The hackle fibres make an interesting addition to a dubbing blend to get some 'leggy' bits in the mix.
