Do you tie them with goose or duck?

I like them with the matte side out, which with duck gives the splayed wing, with goose shoulder, matte side out gives the flat wing.
I'm sure you know this.

Davie McPhail just did a nice video of a trout fin variant with goose wings..its a beauty

i tye with all eathers i get my hands on.

i usually tye larger flies with goose,smaller with duck.i came across tons of old herter's quills.

but i also use turkey,guinea,or any quill.

i really like some old catskill cheats,wherein they would simply old a slip of turkey and clip it with shears in the back.a version of a cow dung looks great that can tye them in a minute,haha

lots of pics of that kind of stuff over at sparse gray matter.

i am in the process of reconsidering my take on wings.

i think this spring i will use some downwing or splayed wing flies and see if they out-fish my upwings!
