With only a few companies offering hackle quills anymore, the quality is pretty poor at best. They are either too short, too thick, too brittle, or they are died with cheap dye which starts to break down as soon as you get them wet. Our quills are hand stripped(not with chemicals which makes them brittle) and then dyed using the best dyes on the market. Don't think that quills are only good for dry flies, some of our best new Perdigons are tied using them, We guarantee that ours are better than ANYTHING else you will find. Sold in packs of 20(each quill will tie up to 3 flies depending on size).
