Thanks everyone. I appreciate the comments. Blueheron, it's funny that I could be so attracted to orange and black when it's wrapped on a hook and when it's on a hockey sweater it makes me nauseous

Eunan, yeah I like the wings in for some reason. I know guys like Gordon Chesney and others tie them splayed for a little more movement in the current. I think I only do it this way for aesthetics. I actually bought my current batch of quills from Don B. I kept finding quills that were chewed up or not matched up properly. I don't know if he is still selling them but when I need more I'm going to try him first.

I get my quills from Spirit River. Sometimes they're shorter than others i've found interms of barb length. I was just tying on size 7 hooks last night and it was already somewhat of a struggle to get wings right. Hook and Hackle is the only supplier i konw of that sells spirit river.

I did buy some white quills from the craft store that i dyed myself, and the barb length on those was much longer and easier to work with than the predyed quills....it really does take a lot of trial and error, and the best way to find the best quills is to see them as you buy them
