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.

I just googled the Summerberry , nice looking fly !!

Those feathers are definetly from the neck of a male Black Shouldered Peacock .... I'm staring at my complete pelt right now . The feather is "electric blue" with hues of gold and green .... beautiful feathers . John at feathersmc has them readily available .... about $5 for 10 feathers .

If you would like to see what they are like to tie with , PM me your address and I'll send you a dozen .
