Our grade “A” quality rhea feathers are made up of fibres between 3-5 inches in length and sourced from Fly Gal. These feathers are ideal for tying modern steelhead streamers and other various patterns (including the popular Intruder series of flies).
We suggest using rhea rather than ostrich, as rhea is more durable and holds colour better (ultimately extending the life of your fly). Rhea fibres are a thinner diameter than most other materials used for length, thus allowing additional room for more strands to be tied in.
In summary, these feathers result in long-lasting flies with dramatically undulating action.
Cut & stacked, or peel & wrap over a supporting collar/dubbing ball to create large profiles with minimal bulk, and give a flowing appearance to flies that are stripped or swung.
Assorted colors available.1 feather per package.
