    Hello all. I tie flies and use the tail feathers from turkeys very often. I was wondering if anyone here had some laying around or if they would be willing to collect some as they fall out? I have attached a couple of flies that I have tied that use turkey and dyed white turkey tail. I completely understand if people do not respond but I thought I would take a shot in the dark and see what turned up. There are so many lovely birds on here! Keep up the great work everyone![​IMG][​IMG]

    Thank you very much! I love making them. I draw and paint as well so this is just another artistic outlet that I am finding. I tie flies for fishing as well but the big "freestyle salmon" flies are just a blast to come up with. Here are a couple more that I have tied recently.
