Summerberry fly shown in the current issue of Northwest Flyfishing calls for blue Peacock neck feathers. Does this mean Peacock neck feathers dyed blue, natural color blue? Or is there such a thing as a Blue Peacock? And where can I get some of these feathers? All I've ever seen are green, either tails or sword.

Thanks guys. I checked out feathersmc and found pictures of these feathers. A couple days later I got to digging around and found some feathers I had forgotten I had. Now all I have to do is figure out how to mount them. I've tried flattening the stems, but I'm still not getting the results I think I should be getting. Are these feathers supposed to somehow be rolled over, kind of tent style? Or simply laid flat and allowed to flair out in their natural shape? Or what? From the pictures I'm looking at, it doesn't look like he is cutting and mounting slips like you would if you were using turkey or goose feathers. But maybe he is and it just doesn't show it very well.
