Don't mess with "synthetic" quills that are too thick and bulky to look natural or "hand stripped" quills that still need to be cleaned and you're lucky if you get one fly out of a single quill. If you want to tie quill body flies, such as our Red and Green Quill Perdigons or Stripper Midges, You're going to need high quality materials. All of our quills are shipped ready to use with no cleaning to be done. We also include instructions showing you how to tie using stripped quills. Comes with 20 quills(approx. 40 flies).
